Are home economics classes still offered in public schools in the US?
These would be classes in sewing and cooking.
They are in Wisconsin, but here we call them Family and Consumer Education (FCE).
It is a mandated class in New York for middle school students, but the class is now called Family and Consumer Sciences (FaCS).
In PA, only in middle school was it required for all students (male and female) to take two home economics courses (one pertaining to preparing and cooking a meal, and the second pertaining to sewing and mending garments).
In middle school its recommened but in highschool they have a diffirent version, the middle school and high school i went to was in virginia. I think the middle school version was more fun though!!
They should be, but another question would be, what is the quality or do they have any value for the students. Schools teach history, science, and government, but it seems many students get out of high school without even a basic understanding.
Also schools should teach, at the very least, basic micro and macro economics.
