Preservice, Inservice, and Graduate Programs in Economic Education.
Dawson, George G.
Promotion of economic literacy of teachers and students is a critical need in economic education. Graduate and undergraduate programs in economic education described in this paper represent significant steps toward the goal of having social studies teachers well-prepared in economics and the teaching of it. Some centers and Councils on Economic Education are developing programs which appear to be more innovative and exciting than those typical of the past. However, barriers between the departments of economics and education must be broken down, and economics programs for preservice or inservice teachers must include evaluation and, if possible, experimental research.
