Professionalizing Home Economics: Certification Success and Challenges.
Simerly, Coby B.; Jensen, Beverly A.
Journal of Home Economics, v85 n4 p37-44 Win 1993
A study of the American Home Economics Association's certification program received responses from 1,002 of 1,595 certificate renewers and 739 of 1,460 nonrenewers. Certification has increased professional commitment and improved state associations, and most are satisfied with the program, except for its effects on employment opportunities and salary. Clarifying the purpose and expectations was recommended. A concern is that 70% of renewers were aged 41-60. (SK)
