A Look at Home Economics Programs in North American Adventist Schools

Results of research on the status of home economics in Adventist academies and colleges in North America. Four surveys dealing with the teaching of home economics were sent out. Survey results indicate that the majority of schools no longer require or even offer home economics at the secondary or college level. On the secondary level more and more schools are terminating their home economics classes. Those that do offer classes teach mainly cooking and sewing. Conclusions and recommendations are offered. This article is from the JAE issue on revitalizing home economics.
