In an evaluation of a consumer and economic education program in Indiana, the authors observe, "Most teachers do not want in-service programs on content; they want in-service programs that present teaching materials. The challenge, then, for in-service instructors is to teach theory and content in the context of presenting materials." This is the more troublesome because the study shows that teachers report, almost uniformly across grade levels, that they place less emphasis on macro-economics than on other topics asked about in the survey questionnaire.
