Poll: Home Economics in School?

Time to check in and be heard, Woolfans:

Did you take Home Economics/Family and Consumer Sciences (or any sort of sewing/cooking/home management/life skills type class) when you were in school? Which of these classes do you think was the most useful? Which class should you have paid better attention in?

Yes, I took good ol' Home Ec when I was in school. There was sewing, cooking, even the economics part. I really wish that I had paid more attention. They need to bring those classes back. Our families need some good old fashioned living lessons. Boy... don't get me started.

I had Home Ec as part of... oh dang I can't remember the name now... it was like a "test out all the different electives" kind of thing. One semester Home Ec, one semester wood shop, one semester mechanical drawing, and one semester something else. Woooo the brain is failing me today!

I took Home Ec (sewing and cooking) in 7th and 8th grade. The teachers were a bit out dated and I probably learned more from my mother, grandmother and some other teachers. But these days I think everyone should still be required to take a cooking class and a basic trades/shop class. (I took shop in 7th and 9th.) And I bet a lot of younger, hipper crafty teachers could make it more fun and applicable to real life! ;-)
