Yes, I did cooking classes when I was in school but my kids haven’t had any home ec classes yet. I don’t think they’re in the curriculum. It’s a shame; I think schools should teach more real life skills, but then again I’m not sure how much I actually learned from the cooking classes. We didn’t learn how to make too many meals and most of the meals weren’t that healthy. They were chosen for ease, instead of useful meals we would actually be making on a frequent basis.
