2022 Survey of the States – Hawaii


  • Hawaii’s economics requirements are now being noted as integrated into other curriculum.
  • This is not a policy change from previous years, it is instead a change in interpretation. In conversations with the Hawaii Department of Education in the months leading up to publication of the 2022 Survey of the States, it became clear Hawaii’s economics requirements are incorporated for students in all 4 years of high school social studies curriculum as a standard concept, producing a robust integrated requirement, but not all high schools in Hawaii require students to take a standalone economics course.
