Consumer Education. Fourth-Year Final Report. Report No. 7716.
Haggett, William F.
The Philadelphia School District's Consumer Education project aims to teach consumers to spend their money more wisely. Services offered by the Consumer Affairs Education Services staff included workshops for teachers and parents, support for individual teacher and faculties through liaison staff members, materials from and the use of the resource center, newsletters, teacher guides, and a parent education component. Of the seven measured objectives, six were completely attained and one was partially attained. Requests for materials were responded to, teachers were actively encouraged to integrate consumer education into their regular curricula, and field testing of the competency guide continued. New curricular materials were evaluated, and a series of criterion referenced tests are being developed. The parent education program is fully operational; parents, business and governmental agencies have participated in project activities. (Author/MV)
