Program Content. Perspectives on Consumer Education. A NASBE Monograph Series.
Prentice, Dinah, Ed.
This document is one in a series of three monographs developed by the National Association of State Boards of Education and designed to acquaint the reader with consumer education issues and how they affect policies. Included in these monographs are articles on what should be taught as part of consumer education, how consumer education programs should be designed, and some current consumer education topics. The articles contain some suggestions for developing policies intended to provide students with practical life skills without detracting from the high priority placed upon reading and math. Focusing on program content, this monograph presents views from the following individuals and groups: an educator, the United States Chamber of Commerce, the National Consumers League, business and industry, the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations, the Joint Council on Economic Education, and a state school board member. Concluding the monograph is an article presenting a macro view and explaining its impact on policy. (BM)
