Reads the textbook a lot. Get on his bad side are youre fucked! If you have him as a teacher I recommend either switching out or sucking up to him. I wouldn't say he isnt knowledgable but he is very biased. I got a 76 in course iirc mostly because he absolutely hated me. Sent me to the office over little arguments. He really likes baseball so I suggest reading up on that more than the textbook and talking to him about it. Might help.

Really like Mr. Gallacher. He follows the textbook really really closely, which is good and bad depending on how you learn. But he talks from experience and bring up a lot of current events. Good teacher.

I took his summer school economics course last year. Curriculum followed the textbook, but his explanations were much better. He applied economics to the real world, communicated well and was very fair. He kept everyone involved and participating.

Not recommended for students who are planning into commerce. Taking his economics in high school is equivalent to not taking economics in high school. One word… useless.
