No Child Is Left Behind in the Family and Consumer Sciences Classroom
Card, Beverly
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v96 n1 p8-10 2004
Over the years, family and consumer sciences (FCS) classrooms have provided education for all students--from the gifted and talented to the mentally challenged. The typical classroom environment is warm, inviting, and realistic. Students work together to apply knowledge to real life experiences. The importance of reading, writing, math, and science has been evident as learning unfolds. Lessons include hands-on experiences such as balancing a checkbook and calculating the cost of raising a child. Students also gain the insight and knowledge necessary to become productive, contributing citizens in a complex world. Emphasis is placed on practical life skills in both the home and workplace. Through an FCS education, students become lifelong learners who can adapt to change in our global society.
