Effects of the High School Economics Curriculum on Learning in the College Principles Class.
Lopus, Jane S.
Journal of Economic Education, v28 n2 p143-53 Spr 1997
Asserts that most research into the effects of high school economics curriculum upon performance in college level economics courses fails to consider that secondary economics education rarely teaches micro- and macroeconomic concepts. Discovers that any gap in learning between students in economics is narrowed by the first semester in college. (MJP)
