Family and Consumer Sciences Secondary School Programs: National Survey Shows Continued Demand for FCS Teachers
Werhan, Carol R.
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v105 n4 p41-45 2013
A national survey of secondary family and consumer sciences (FCS) programs from 2010-2012 academic years indicates that 3,427,601 students were enrolled in FCS classes and were taught by 27,894 FCS teachers. These numbers show a decline in enrollment and teachers over the past 10 years (Werhan & Way, 2006). However, FCS secondary programs continue to be offered in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia. The shortage of highly qualified FCS secondary teachers is reported to be a concern in 50% of states reporting.
