Why should we bring back mandatory Home Economic classes in America?

Teaches basic cooking skills and food hygiene. I completely forgot I did this shit a few times at school.

>> No.14981676

functional young adults turn to somewhat functional adults. It helps reduce the burden of society to pay the way of people who are too stupid or careless to care for themselves.

If someone is given the tools to do things for themselves, they are more free. Freedom is healthy. Freedom is thoughtful. Something as small as being able to bake bread from scratch is a huge self-esteem builder too.

It's sad, because American parents gave up on teaching their kids from the 90's til now - they trusted the public schools, tutors, and established organizations do it for them. Ask someone to change their own oil. Or locate their dipstick in their car at all. Ask them to describe how to clean out the u-bend in their sink. They're HELPLESS, and it's manufactured helplessness. There's so many reasons to help educated people in ways to educate and take care of themselves, but it's falling away at the seams.

>> No.14981680

do they not have those? As a millennial we definitely still had those

>> No.14981699

Were they mandatory or an elective? Most schools let kids decide if they wanna take it or not, if they do they think it’s an easy A since they just fuck around and make cupcakes

>> No.14981705

Considering the average millennial/gen Z survives on Uber Eats, yes this shouldn’t even be argued

>> No.14981711

I've changed my own oil lots of times when I was driving my first car, but now I'd just rather pay someone to do it for me because it turns out I'm not saving as much as I thought by buying the materials and doing it myself.

>> No.14981727

More the principle, I guess. Whether or not someone /can/ do it themselves, instead of being required to go out for a service.

>> No.14981734

Because 20+ year olds not knowing how to cook basic food is embarrassing.

>> No.14981754

I do my own oil changes, but yeah, it's really a value issue. For me, it's easy enough to find an empty lot, throw out my ramps, and deal with all the shit at dirt cheap prices. I like spending some time on my car, just like bikefags spend time on their cuckycles.

I always wanted to take home ec. I think it should return to schools, people need to know basic food science, nutrition, how to upkeep and care for their home, minor repairs, and home budgeting.

>> No.14981817

Home Ec needs to be retooled into a basic adult life skills class. Not just how to cook dinner or sew on a button, but how to do your taxes, how your credit rating works, etc.

>> No.14981823

They actually don't, more people cook at home now than did in the 80s or 90s.

>> No.14981833

>more people cook at home now than did in the 80s or 90s.
that's only because there are more people in general now, you stupid shit

>> No.14981837

Home ec was optional when I was in school, but I took it anyway hoping to learn some valuable skills. I didn't learn shit, we only followed recipies to the T. Buncha cute girls though, so that was nice.

Not my job to help the useless. Those who take an interest in learning how to live a decent and functional life, can easily teach themselves. The resources available to those people is enormous. You can teach yourself almost anything these days, from sewing to making dinner to baking bread ... But only if you take an interest.

Most people are lazy assholes, and I could give a shit about how they live, what they do or if they are having fulfilled lives.

Feminism happened and started making women want to focus on higher careers so the funding for home ec gradually got lower and lower and cut completely in some schools

>How to do your taxes
Iunno about you, but here all you have to do is make sure the govt has your bank details and they can calculate the rest themselves without you having to actually do anything.
Then a few weeks later you get an email telling you how much they're gunna send you.
"Doing" your taxes hasn't been a thing since the 90s.

This is more or less bullshit. Auto shop disappeared the same time as did Home Ec, as did wood working and metal shop.

It's just cost cutting.

There is no need for that. Just learn to follow recipes. There are a ton of very basic cooking tutorials on you tube.

Not enough diversity in that image. My social studies professor Mr Schultzstein told me all about this last semester.

Home ec was where I learned about basic nutrition.

>> No.14985042

the concept of the food pyramid is outdated. imagine eating mostly bread and pasta

>> No.14985056

Carbs, especially complex carbs like whole wheat, are a good source of the long-term energy you need throughout the day. Of course your diet should be rich in them. Vegetables have essential nutrients but aren't calorie rich enough and meats and dairy can lead to heart problems if consumed in excess.

I was taught this in a public school btw.

>> No.14985078

while what you're saying is not incorrect, we no longer live in a situation where we need calorie-rich foods to fuel or twelve hour workday in the field. we are fortunate enough to have an abundance of food to fuel our sedentary lives. for a sedentary lifestyle, if you eat too many carbs (complex carbs included), youll get fat. a diet richer in proteins and vegetables is better suited for the modern lifestyle

Mandatory Government brainwashing (and nigger daycare) """"education"""" is one of the major causes of that.

We had that as a class separate from home ec. It also covered things like budgeting, insurance, loans, and how to fill out a check. They cover very different sets of life skills that wouldn't work well as a combined class.

It is. You unironically live in a society and that is what society does. I bet there was a Neanderthal who went, "well he broke his leg it's not my problem why should I have to help him???" Then the others just beat him to death with rocks and helped the injured one.
