Abstract

The second edition of the Voluntary National Content Standards in Economics was published by the Council for Economic Education in 2010. The authors examine the process for revising these precollege content standards and highlight several changes that appear in the new document. They also review the impact the standards have had on precollege economic education since the original edition was released in 1997, and conclude with their response to comments offered by participants in a January 2012 American Economic Association conference session titled, “What Economics Should We Teach Before Students Enter College? The Voluntary National Content Standards in Economics and the AP.”
