A caller mentioned gardening being taught in the schools. That would be awesome. If kids can have access to a greenhouse in the winter, and tend a garden in the sunny months then that would be fantastic! If my school had allowed us to garden at recess I totally would have. I hated sports and all the dichotomy of how to be popular. Plants would have given me a much healthier view of school. I would have actually wanted to go every day!
So, what do you think? Did you have Home Ec and did you like it? Did it enhance your life? All I can say is I learned how to make biscuits, how to clean, how to sew a kitty cat door stop. I'm set for life!
