Abstract: The purpose of this study was to trace the historical development of Home Economics taught in the public elementary schools in the Philippines from 1900 to 1980. Specifically, it sought to determine: (a) the general educational aims and policies that affected the elementary Home Economics instruction, (b) the reforms and changes made in the elementary Home Economics curriculum, and (c) the influence of the prevailing national political ideology and focus of governmental control in the elementary Home Economics curriculum. Historical research methods were followed. Data were gathered from documents, curricula in Home Economics, directives to teachers, memoranda, bulletins, circulars, Annual Reports of the Director of Education, census reports, Survey Reports of Educational Commissions, Reports of the Philippine Commission, books, periodicals, theses, and dissertations. Information was critically examined, gathered, and organized.
