I guess not if you author the alternative standards
. Scholar the Owl has gotten the list of authors of the standards
, and here's the team for YOUR SENATE'S economics standards:
"3. Economics Writing Team
Joseph A. Ritter
Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs
Department of History
University of Minnesota
Social Studies Teacher, grades 10-12, Osseo High School, Osseo,
Minnesota, 1966-July 1, 2000"
Deutsch is a historian and Theisen is no longer an active teacher. Ritter was an economist at the St. Louis Federal Reserve and I don't believe he is a full-time professor at the HHH. Exactly what is it about these three that make them competent to write these standards?
