Every student should take cooking classes because if they don't they might not be able to take care of themselves they might just rely on their parents or someone else to cook for them. If someone doesn"t get cooking lessons and they"re married their companion might want them to cook for a while or just that once but they will not know how to cook.
Cooking lesson aren"t even that expensive, some come in schools, but you could get a family member to teach you how to cook and then you could teach another family member how to cook so the family can all live on their own and take care of themselves.


Should all students be required to take cooking classes?

While fundamentally, I can agree that cooking classes could benefit all students futures, I have a problem with it:

Cooking classes are useful some ways: Learning to cook, prepare food, become a chef, etc.
Many people will take no use of such cooking classes, Personal and Culinary Services majors only make up around 0.5% of degrees out of college as reported by the National Center for Education statistics division.

Of course, these cooking classes in high school would help students be able to serve themselves, but nowadays, everything is on the internet and you can practically search and find out how to make a nice meal on Youtube. Fast food and quick food is becoming increasingly more popular and healthy, due to government standards and laws requiring organic, clean food/meat to be made in such restaurants, creating easier and cheaper opportunities for these students to get food.

Again, I respect the fact that on a moral basis, cooking classes would help the future generation to learn to cook, but other options are easier and more efficient.

We all need to be prepared for the possibility of at any time having to fend for ourselves.

I totally agree with you!!!

Unfortunately for todays generation they are never leaving home, so mom can always cook for them, wash their Green Lantern pj's and their Star Wars bed sheets and give them allowance money because they only work 12 hours a week flipping burgers because they are too busy playing fortnite, 90 hours a week and complaining that there are no good jobs for them while wasting their whole day texting and on socializing with their 1000 Facebook friends, while having no real friends.
