Abstract

The teaching of Economics is more than ever before gathering a lot of attention among Economics educators. The quest to make a meaningful impact on the lives of learners is a serious task before educators. Sustainable development can only take place in a nation if the citizens are well educated and empowered to apply the knowledge acquired through education in solving their problems rather than depending on the government. Economics as a field of study is capable of facilitating the economic and political progress of the people. This can only be achieved through effective implementation of the Economics curriculum. Hence, this paper focused on Economics curriculum implementation at the senior secondary school level. Most of the works reviewed showed that the ability of the students of Economics to comprehend what is being taught and apply it to daily activities lies in how well the curriculum is implemented. The society is dynamic and as such the school curriculum tries to adjust.  The paper, therefore, examined the concept of curriculum and curriculum implementation, and senior secondary school Economics curriculum. Also discussed in this paper are some emerging issues and factors that affect Economics curriculum implementation in secondary schools. The paper concludes that effective Economics curriculum implementation is the remedy for the poor performance of Economics students in both internal and external examinations.
