THE REMOVAL OF HOME ECONOMICS
Thirty years ago, home economics programs such as sewing, cooking and shop classes were a standard part of the education system. Today, most home economics programs have been removed from schools and our society is failing to pass these skills on to the children. Research has shown that practical skills such as patience, problem solving and delayed instant gratification can be learned in experience based educational programs such as sewing classes.
TEACHING PRACTICAL SKILLS
Sewing/textile arts classes are designed to educate and inspire children by teaching them essential life and practical skills.
