High School Economic Education in Texas: 1920 to Present
Kang, Rui
American Educational History Journal, v34 n1 p189-203 2007
The purpose of this study is to summarize the public high school economic curriculum and instruction in the state of Texas since the 1920s. Three historical periods were of primary interest: (1) the 1920s and 1930s; (2) the postwar and cold war eras; and (3) 1980 until now. Meaningful comparisons across periods are made, whenever reasonable, in order to trace the trajectory of high school economic education in the state of Texas. The study is also aimed to relate economic curriculum and instruction to the larger political and social environment nation- and worldwide, to examine how political and social events affected economic education, and how economic education responded to the political and social needs. (Contains 2 tables.)
