The Problem and Its Background
Importance of Consumer Education
Today, the terms "consumer education" and "economic education" are used commonly in discussions of the public school curriculum. However, such discussions are often undertaken without a full understanding of the various implications of the terms. But, to define the terms specifically is considered by some leaders in the field to narrow their scope and application. This is clear in the statement by Wilson,1 namely, "To limit the application of consumer education to one segment or area of the school's work is to reduce its vitality." Thus consumer education may be more a point of view than a specific area of material.
