Economics To Be Taught To Primary Students

09 Jan 2013

School principals are concerned with government’s plan to teach the basics of economics and business  to primary school students.

"For young Australians not to be aware of the basics of economics and business [is] for young Australians not to be aware of the potential in terms of their employment, the subject choices that they might make in high school, and young Australians not to be able to manage their personal finances, which even at that age can be an important issue in someone's life,"

"We need to move past that and that's why having these subjects provided for in the national curriculum I think is generally seen as a positive."

Basis of the curriculum for economics and business curriculum have already been prepared by the Australian Curriculum Reporting and Assessment Authority.

"I think the key thing here is to make sure that we have a provision of subjects at a high learning level to give kids a foundation for learning and then an opportunity to make choices whatever their choices might be,"

The main reason for worry for school principals is that addition of a new subject to an already busy schedule can take the time from other major subjects.

"There are four areas that are the core business of primary schools - literacy and numeracy, science and social education, if you like,"

"Now these subjects, business and economics, probably fit under the banner of social education and if they can be integrated into existing work and used in a way that makes that more meaningful to students and helpful for them later in life then that would be a good thing to do in my opinion.

"If we are to have it as an add-on to an already extremely busy working week for primary school students, then I think we need to ask some questions around what goes instead."
