Guest: Natalie Hancock, President, Utah Association of Family and Consumer Sciences and Director, Family and Consumer Sciences Education, Brigham Young University Students in middle school and high school today are expected to study reading, writing and arithmetic, just like they always have, but on top of the core basics, they’re also encouraged to study computer coding and foreign language at earlier and earlier ages. Electives like art, music and home economics (now called family sciences) can get squeezed out. And when budgets need to be cut, it’s ironically classes like family sciences  that teach students about personal finance, as well as cooking and sewing, that can be first on the chopping block. There's a lot to lose, though, by cutting family and consumer sciences.
