The article is devoted to the analysis of the problem of improving school economics education in the context of the challenges of the society and the economy based on knowledge, information, and innovation for the 21st century. The problem of development of the economic culture of the individual and the cultural approach to its development in the changing school economic education is actualized in the article. Theoretical prerequisites for the development of the cultural approach to improving school economic education, which is based on the idea of developing and synthesizing divergent economic thinking and experience in economic activity to solve vital problems, are analyzed. The research materials have been successfully tested and implemented in the experience of in-service education of schoolteachers at the Mikhail Fedorenko Academy in the regions of the Russian Federation and in the Moscow State Pedagogical University.

Keywords: globalization, economics, school economic education, economic culture, cultural approach, divergent economic thinking, experience of economic activity
