Con

No they shouldn't because when they are taught their parents may not allow them to cook until they are older so it would be useless. I think that students should choose for themselves because it is an elective not a core class.

Pro

Yes, they should. Many students leaving schools have no idea how to cook. This means they just rely on ready meals, which are frankly not healthy. If they are taught on how to make healthy meals for themselves there may not be as much of a problem with obesity in the younger generations. It's a good life skill to have.

I agree with pro. Most people barely even know how to make a sandwich, let alone cook for themselves the rest of their lives. It's ridiculous to say not to, people can't get McDonald's forever.
