So last week Dan Abrams on Good Morning America, part of the Jury's Out segment commented that parents should teach their children "Home Ec". Jury's Out - Bring Back Home Ec?
So many responses came in supporting "Home Ec" - known as Family and Consumer Science, thank you very much, led to Dan Abrams visiting Belleville, New Jersey where he got to spend a class period in "Intro to Culinary". He was a student in the class with 15 students, taught by "J" one of many FCS teachers in New Jersey, AAFCS member and an FCCLA adviser.
Yeah J! Thanks for representing us. I am sure that he had his eyes opened as to how it's not just "cooking", but that the essential skills of life are all intertwined.
So everyone - tune in to "Good Morning America" tomorrow morning, the segment is due to be aired!
