  • Home economic is essential to everyday life.

    Schools should have home economics classes because not all parents have time, or the know how to able to teach their kids. So the schools need to step it up. If it weren't for home economic I would not have learned that I like to bake. I didn't even know what the different utensils were called until I took home economics.

  • Modern Day Version of Home Ec teaches basic life skills for both genders

    Life is an equal opportunity event. To live life, one must learn to master skills of cooking/nutrition, taking care of the home/children, financial obligations -- how to pay bills, balance a checkbook and buy a house. All parts of home ec. Sewing is an option... But the other items are life skills. Sure, we can and should learn these at home... But a different perspective of solid education is sorely needed in today's society to help raise children into responsible adults who can thrive. For a public school education designed to give our youth a helpful bridge into adulthood, this is a must along side reading, writing and math. We all have to eat, we KNOW that nutrition is key. Most will have children... Basic child rearing is essential. Most will have a bank account and need to know how to spend money... These are basics in life and not currently being taught.

  • Of course we need it!

    Many parents don’t have time to teach their children how to cook so if they have a home economics class, they could learn & then do it a home. Numerous people would say,”This idea is stupid, we have a fridge, oven, & a stove so why in the world do we need home economics?”. I would like to say we do need that class because every year, people just rely on technology to do everything for them. What if they have no money & they need to make their own dinner & all they know how to use is microwave for ramen noodles?

  • Absolutely it should!!

    With the number of childhood obesity on the rise, it is essential to teach students the importance of healthy eating, healthy living and how to support a healthy lifestyle. Many parents today, no fault of their own due to demanding jobs, which means less time at home, don't have the time to cook nor the time to teach kids how to cook. It is just the way it is. How are kids going to learn such skills that are vital for life and living? The skills that they can learn through the Home Economics classroom, are skills for life. Isn't that what education is all about?!

  • Home Ec classes is needed for everyday uses!!

    Home Economics are needed for everyday uses. It has helped very many people in life. Such as in cooking, cleaning, sewing, child care, jobs, job interviews, interior design, body care, nutrition, fashion, folding, sorting, drying, washing, and many more!! But if we don't have a class we can't learn how to do those things. So if it costs too much you can learn how to handle finances in home ec too!! Girls need it and some boys do too!! Please help schools to bring back home ec!!!

  • It will obviously be used later in life

    Will you be using linear regression ten years after graduating high school? Probably not. Will you need to know how carbon reacts to oxygen in a chemistry lab? Most likely you will not. However, five to ten years after graduating high school, you're gonna have to balance a checkbook, feed kids, so on and so forth. Thus, there needs to be some level of education on this due to the lack of parental teaching

  • 100% yes for both girls and guys to take economic classes

    Both sexes need to learn to take care of themselves in every aspect and not rely on another person to do it for them. Your house does not clean itself. You need to know how to manage your money to cover all your bills to have enough to buy food to last,learn how to make nutritious meals and what essentials to keep on hand in your kitchen at all times. Not just eating fast food wasting money and poor nutrion.It is sad to watch a girl come into this home where everyone pays their share does their share helping out except her. She has done nothing but leave messes,stealing others food as she is short on money wasting it on fast food and buying herself what ever,wasting up all the utilities raising up our bills and no respect for others or the house that does not belong to her,nor hold down a steady job, when everyone else is doing their part even the guys who have learned economics and do well in most to all aspects of it and tried to help her. Yes,yes,yes to

  • Passing down from family to family.

    We don't need Home Economics because the dad and mom can teach their children how to do all the things they did in the home economic classes. Furthermore, there is a reason why there are restaurants, washing machines, etc. It is for the people to use them so that the person who owns the business can get money, which will lead to a better economy.

  • No, it is not necessary today.

    No, home economics should not be a required class, because home economics is not a needed skill today. Children do not need to learn to show in a world where clothes are cheap and not made at home. Children do not need to learn how to cook when they can buy pre-packaged and prepared food.

  • A Dissenting Opinion.

    I'll be honest, part of this was just because you can't have a debate without dissenting opinions, however I can only agree with this "No" by using the exact wording of the question. And even then, it is a fairly weak "No". I don't think it is strictly necessary for everyone to take the class - I know a few old classmates who already had several of these skills before even getting to high school. It can also be a logistical nightmare to make sure every student - especially in larger schools - takes a certain course. However, I do think it should be mandatory for schools to have the class available to all students who want to take it.
