For many, Home Ec (I didn't even know that the Ec stood for Economics till later in life) is a fun class where you learn how to sew and cook a little meal. For others, it is a class that prepared students for life outside of high school.
So what if Home Economics could be more? Financial literacy and empowerment, home maintenance, car repair and driver's education, education on the local living economy, professionalism and career skills and exploration, interpersonal relationship skills, health and wellness including food, nutrition and cooking, shop, making and repairing, etc.
This could easily be a 4 year program with the curriculum geared toward the students as they get closer to graduation.
What are your thoughts on what this could look like?
