A Symposium on the New Homemaking Education. Bulletin, 1933, No. 3
Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior
One of the seven objectives of education adopted by the committee on the reorganization of secondary education was "worthy home membership." Adoption of this objective led to a reexamination of provisions for homemaking education. As a result, a number of regional conferences were held at which educational leaders and scientists in various fields of knowledge considered the place and function of home economics in American education, and the curriculum content of home economics in the schools and higher institutions. The aim of this bulletin is to set forth some of the views on the needs for homemaking education as expressed by those attending the various conferences, and who are laboring with the educational, economic, and social problems surrounding present home life, with the hope that the constructive suggestions made by these experts will lead to the building of a homemaking program which will develop in boys and girls alike an appreciation for, and a desire to participate in, the daily activities of home life, as well as an intelligent understanding of the factors involved in sound home life. The challenge to those responsible for the homemaking program is vigorously supported by leading social scientists in their clear-cut analyses of the forces now at work which are bringing about serious changes in present home and family life, if perhaps not disintegrating influences that are bearing down upon the Nation's institution fundamental to its future security.
