During the Texas Education Agency’s instructional materials State Review Panel, the reviewers wrote:
This offering for this newly created and mandated option necessary for graduation from high school in the State of Texas is nothing short of outstanding. We found the presentation of the material engaging, fresh and on-point to allow the teacher to convey the PFL/Econ TEKS/ELPS in a precise yet concise format that students will benefit from enormously. The scope and sequence is advanced which will give the teacher a lot of latitude in selecting their classroom approach. The students will benefit from the comprehensive body of material to learn the subject in a concrete and useful way. The level of rigor is high which might create a stretch goal for a fair percentage of students when taught by the less experienced teacher of either PFL or Economics.
