Description

For the past few years the homemaking courses has shifted its emphasis from cooking and sewing skills to the solving of managerial problems of the individual and the family of today. Each person who is taking an active part in living is constantly purchasing and consuming goods and services and must realize that his welfare depends upon the relation between the satisfactions that he receives from the things he buys and the price that he pays for them. Since every one must purchase goods, the high school student needs to learn how to buy wisely. The executive committees of the homemaking divisions in the different states which are revising the courses of study realize that management of money from the consumer-buying view point is important and needs a place in meeting the needs and interests of the high school student of today. The problem in this study is to determine the adequacy of the objectives on consumer-buying in the homemaking courses in high schools of the Southern Region. This study is made for the purpose of determining the adequacy and extent of consumer-buying teaching objectives in homemaking education in the high schools of the Southern region. in order that way may reach a conclusion as to the adequacy of the objectives we must adopt a standard. We will consider the objectives and desired outcomes set forth by the Department of the Interior as that standard. We will reach our conclusion through a compilation of consumer-buying courses offered by the schools of these states of the Southern region and by a comparison of the objectives and outcomes of the state courses with those of the United States Vocational Education consumer-buying courses.
