  • Home Economics Is Essential

    This is a course that provides students with multiple different life skills that will be useful to them in the future. I am so thankful I had to take this course because I learned how to cook, sew, iron, financial literacy, basic home repairs, etc. The most important thing I learned was how to be self-sufficient and not have to depend on someone else doing something for me. This is a course that can teach life skills and even help when finding a career.

  • Home econ needs to be required/

    What are you going to do when you move out and you don't know how to simply make chicken? That is why home econ is an important class. Home econ is about house old basics and repairs. Anyone who can't do a basic repair isn't very prepared for life yet. Cooking is another important skill because none wants to eat the same thing every day or get sick from under cooked food.

  • Home Economics Should Be a Required Class in High School

    This class teaches students valuable life skills that can help them save money. To address the argument “the parents should teach home economics at home”: What if the parents don’t know how or are really bad at skills that can be taught in a home Econ class? What if parents teach their children a wrong or inefficient way of paying taxes, balancing a checkbook, or repairing a car? A standardized home economics class would ensure that all graduating high schoolers would enter the working world knowing the most efficient home economic skills.

  • Yes, and for most secondary schools, they already are.

    These classes are already required across the nation in various amounts. Personally speaking, these are the classes that teach each generation how to function in the 'real world'. It's because of these classes being required that graduates everywhere aren't completely lost when they go to live on their own. If we were to increase the amount of credits required of these courses to graduate, we would be doing future generations a favor. It would teach them about not only how to live on their own, manage their financials, etc.

  • Go home economics

    If you learn home economics you can help your parents around the house. If you do that you would be taking a load off your parents backs unless you are rich and have maids that do everything for you . If you are be grateful for your maids they work really hard.

  • Home Ec IS a required class.

    You need home economics to teach you the ropes of your own home. It would be not only good for your acedemics but, also good for your social life. It will help you in the future when you must survie on your own. So say YES home Ec. Should be required as a class. Students should have the right to learn the ropes, ups and downs of your life. YES! YES! YES! Home Ec. Is needed for students. Especially with the grade under high school, like %th and up.

  • Yes they should

    You should make cooking classes be part of a teens schedule in highschool because, according to Fast food nation.Com 55% of the average american's diet is processed food and only 33% is animal products. Also from 1967-2009 there's a 30% increase in people eating fast food. If people knew how to cook they would eat less pre packaged/cooked processed food and fast food but instead cook natural,healthy food such as steak and green beans. However other might say like a person i know says that sometimes there's just no time to cook stuff or they forgot to get stuff for lunch or supper. However the amount of fast food consumed would significantly go down because most time a grilled burger tastes so much better than a pre frozen big mac from mcdonalds.
    Also it is important to learn shop and electrician classes because it saves money. In our technology filled world everything needs power. It can come from outlets, or portable chargers, or batteries but from a quick look around most stuff needs to be charged or plugs in a wall. Learning from the stuff ,my Dad has to improve on tools or equipment and even the house i have learned carpentry and electrics is a vital skill. With an $184 average on the cost of a business to put in an outlet, (Angieslist.Com), it is really expensive. But if you could learn how to do this in high school, it would seem like a silly expense for a simple task. Where does carpentry come in? You have to cut a big enough hole in your wall to fit your hand through, I know you know this but it wont make sense if i don't include it, The hole yu cut is normally bigger than your hand so you got to patch t up to the right size. If you choose to build a normal shed it could be as little as $300 but hiring a contractor could cost $3000. While a shop class wouldn't show you how to build a shed t would show you the basics and it would be a whole lot more than trying to build a shed with no building experience. Others might say in today's technology based world you don't need such skills(debate.Com) but, it might just be me but spending hundreds to thousands of dollars on something you could do yourself just seems like a waste of money.

  • I say NO

    Because if you want to become a designer or a chef when you're older, that's great! There are special classes that you can sign up for, you can learn from your parents or even watch a video on youtube. But a lot of people want to become other things because those to jobs are very specific to some people. Not everyone has to learn what only some people need.

  • It shouldn't be the schools job

    Way back in history down the the age of man we learned things. We have came a long way since then, but we still have to learn things. Did school have home skills in 1800s? No they didn't. The kids learned what to do by watching and asking for help from the parents. Now a days the parents don't teach the kids how to cook, which is a basic skill needed to survive. It's the parents fault. Every generation is getting becoming more lazy. So schools don't needed to teach the kids how to cook,clean,or how to do anything else in the home life because the parents should teach them that.

  • I say NO

    We don't need to have a home economics class, because the students will just get bored and fall asleep. The student's parents can easily teach their kids how to cook, its mostly already done and prepackaged. The student don't need to know how to sew clothes, because they can just buy something else.

  • I Say NO

    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.
