The Importance of Family & Consumer Sciences Education

“Family and consumer sciences education serves as a foundation for life literacy education. One curriculum goal is to improve students’ ability to be successful in today’s world. As outlined by National Standards for Family and Consumer Sciences (NASAFACS, 2008-2018) content such as nutrition and wellness; interpersonal relationships; child development; parenting; consumer, personal and family finance; goal setting; problem solving; communication, and conflict resolution are instrumental to an individual’s development as a successful career-life manager. Success in work-life balance and family relationships impacts career productivity and success. A community is only as healthy as the individuals living and working there. Family and consumer sciences programs integrate leadership development opportunities for youth through Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA).”
