Tennessee Council on Economic and Free Enterprise Education
at Middle Tennessee State University's Jones College of Business

Our mission is to equip PreK-12 schools with standards-based resources and professional development to teach economics, personal finance and the free enterprise system using practical, innovative and inspiring methods.

Our vision is for Tennessee students to master an understanding of economics and personal finance and apply that knowledge for success in the free enterprise system.
