Industrial Revolution was the beginning of the phenomenon of child labor. Capitalists employed children, based on the autonomy of private law and the principle of contract, and put them under an adult-working condition whose labor intensity is not consistent with their physiological and psychological development. The health of children’s physical and mental development had been greatly harmed and the process of national civilization and the construction of legal system had been undermined, which was hard to ensure the rights to survival, health and development of these juveniles. Therefore, plenty of countries have launched special protective measures for underage workers.

Public management refers to the guidance of various laws, regulations, policies and plans by the government to solve problems that arise in the process of social and economic development, and to provide support and services when solving problems. Economy and management are important parts of my country's education system, and there is a close relationship between the two. In the process of social development, the two influence each other. The purpose of constructing the educational content system of economics and management is to promote the maturity and development of educational economics and management. This article mainly uses analysis method and questionnaire survey method to study the related theories, feasibility and development direction of the system construction. The survey data shows that 38.9% of seniors attach importance to the method system, 33.3% of the seniors attach importance to the application system, and 36.8% of the juniors attach importance to the theoretical foundation. Therefore, different grades have different requirements for this, but the construction of the overall education content system is supported by the majority of people.
