Economics education

Economics education or economic education is a field within economics that focuses on two main themes: 1) the current state of, and efforts to improve, the economics curriculum, materials and pedagogical techniques used to teach economics at all educational levels; and 2) research into the effectiveness of alternative instructional techniques in economics, the level of economic literacy of various groups, and factors that influence the level of economic literacy.[1][2] Economics education is distinct from economics of education, which focuses on the economics of the institution of education.

Numerous organizations devote resources toward economics education. In the United States, organizations whose primary purpose is the advancement of economics education include the Higher education contexts, and the non-profit Economics & Business Education Association (EBEA) for secondary education.

Journals devoted to the topic of economics education include the Journal of Economic Education,[3] International Review of Economics Education,[4] Australasian Journal of Economics Education,[5] and Computers in Higher Education Economics Review.
