A national conference of city supervisors of home economics was called by the U.S. Commissioner of Education, and attended by representatives from 20 States and the District of Columbia, plus one representative from New Zealand. The three-day conference was convened in Washington, D.C., to: (1) bring together supervisors, teachers of home economics, and representatives from leading agencies contributing to home economics education; (2) discuss the contribution of home economics to the fundamental principles of health, citizenship, and character; and (3) formulate the means by which the following question might be studied: "What is the specific contribution of home economics education that justifies its place in the public school system?" Program sessions covered the topics: (1) What the school expects of home economics; (2) What the home expects of home economics; (3) How the college is meeting the demands of the school and the home; (4) How the Federal departments are meeting the demands of the school and the home; (5) The challenge of the health education movement to home economics; (6) The contribution of home economics to citizenship; (7) The junior high school and home economics; and (8) Home economics in the senior high school.
