There needs to be some consensus of opinion on what competencies should be taught in a business management class at the secondary level.
This research proposed to identify and analyze the competencies Cypress-Fairbanks area business persons believe should be taught in a secondary level business management class. The purpose of this study, therefore, was to generate information that could be used in developing a business management curriculum for the Cypress-Fairbanks high schools.
This study was limited to responses given by (1) business persons owning and/or managing retail establishments within a three and one-half mile center radius of the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District (see Appendix A, page 58), and (2) business teachers employed in the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District.
This study was further limited to only those competencies which are suggested by Shilt, Everard, and Johns1 and did not attempt to survey all competencies that could be taught in a business management class.
This study did not attempt to survey the competencies business persons believe should be taught at the post-high school level of education, even though some may overlap.
