Rust, W. Bonney
The Committee for general and technical education of the Council of Europe has initiated several projects to study, compare, and evaluate curriculum materials used in the member nations. The present study in economics attempts to summarize the status of various facets of economics teaching in Western Europe in the early 1970's. It was compiled from a wide range of information sources, including syllabuses of member countries' programs, a series of questionnaires, meetings of economics experts, personal interviews with teachers and administrators, and the study of background literature. The chapter topics include the role of economics in education; the aims of teaching economics; the structure of the syllabus; economics within an educational strategy; secondary termination and university entrance; methods of teaching economics; training teachers; assessing the candidates; and a challenging future for economics.
