Economics as an Area of Study in General Education in the Member States of the European Community, 1990.
EURYDICE European Unit, Brussels (Belgium).
Prepared as a comparative study among the member states of the European Community (EC), this report assesses economics as a subject of general education. A questionnaire concerning the present state and future development of education in economic awareness was prepared and sent to each member nation. The responses to the questionnaires provided the information that was conveyed in the reports from each of the 12 members states. The national reports from the EC member nations comprise the bulk of this volume. The final section of the document seeks to compare and synthesize the information contained in the national reports. There is a comparison of the range of subjects available in the EC states and a comparison of subject matter and teaching objectives. The information in the report is accurate for 1989. Appendices containing the questionnaire and over 50 references are included. (DB)
