Home Economics Education: A Review of the Literature on the Impact of a Decade of Change.
Olson, Susan J.
This paper examines how the field of home economics education adapted to changes in the fields of education and home economics in the last 10 years. National trends and issues related to the employment and education of teachers are discussed with emphasis on influential factors and events such as enrollment declines and changes in the demand for public school teachers. Factors and events influencing changes in home economics and home economics education, including enrollment trends, the labor market for home economics graduates, and overall changes in the field, are examined. The relationship between home economics and home economics education is discussed. The paper concludes that the field of home economics education is in a state of transition, even more so than the broader field of education, and that changes in opportunities for women have affected both of these fields.
