Think about the term “home economics.”
You might picture a class of high school girls back in the day, learning to make meatloaf so they could one day serve it to their families.
Home ec has always taught students practical skills. But today it’s taken on a different flavor, even different names.
For instance, just this month, MPS announced it would launch a new culinary program, this fall.
Like other modern-day courses, the focus today is on helping students land jobs. Classes toss other skills into the mix.
