The learning gap : consumer education in schools : a report by National Consumer Council( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study researched the development of consumer education in British schools 5 years after the introduction of the national curriculum. Information was gathered through the following methods: a literature review, questionnaires sent to all local education authorities (LEAs) in England and Wales and all primary and secondary schools in two LEAs in northwest England, and school visits. Findings indicated that the introduction of the national curriculum had not improved provision of consumer education. Factors contributing to the poor progress were as follows: declining lea support, little lea inservice training, insufficient staffing in schools, and not enough clear guidance for teachers. The study also found that the national curriculum with its emphasis on cross-curricular themes provided countless opportunities to develop consumer education within national curriculum subjects. The lea survey found a lack of evidence that secondary schools saw consumer education as permeating the curriculum in the way advocated by the National Curriculum Council. Responses from schools indicated primary school pupils were more likely to have a whole curriculum experience of consumer education than secondary school pupils. School visits showed primary teachers underestimated the amount of consumer education provided and consumer education was not thriving in secondary schools. Contains 29 references and 3 appendixes: consumer education and the cross-curricular themes; consumer education and national curriculum subjects; and 7 school case studies.) (ylb)

Economics in the General Curriculum 14-18. Curriculum Paper by Steve Hodkinson( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Intended to introduce educators in secondary schools and colleges to discussion promoting economic literacy for all students, this paper offers a critique of the typical economics curriculum, a rationale for economics education, and a working definition of economic literacy. The first section reviews and critiques current curriculum planning in the United Kingdom's secondary schools, questioning the basis on which some writers have justified the inclusion of economics in the curriculum. In the second section, it is argued that inclusion of economics understanding in "core" curriculum would be too overwhelming, based on the rationale that it is only through an economics perspective that students can achieve sufficient objectivity to ensure realistic scrutiny and evaluation of economic issues, problem experiences, and policies that confront individuals and nations. The third section translates themes from this argument into a working definition of economic literacy. Appendices containing examples of economics reasoning conclude the publication. (Lh)
Towards Economics in an Entitlement Curriculum by Steve Hodkinson( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Three aspects of problems, issues, and questions facing curriculum development teams, local authority advisors, and teacher trainers interested in helping teachers in the United Kingdom (uk) construct and shape an effective economics curriculum are examined. First, in an investigation of the curriculum context dimension, the paper predicts that the 1990's will see all young people in the uk receiving an economics education as part of their general education. Although what form(s) it will take and in what stages it will occur remain far from clear, it will be the decision of schools themselves that will frame the research questions and responses of curriculum developers and economics educators to the curriculum context problem. Second, in an examination of economic literacy, the paper considers how existing work in the uk on the nature of economic literacy will assist teachers in judging whether their 16-year old students are economically literate and whether or not their economics curriculum is 'of a worthwhile scale.' Third, the teacher training dimension of economics education is considered including implications for teacher training, the extent to which the needs of existing and future teachers are being met, and the relevancy of current initiatives.
