Abstract: Home economics for girls in the Hew Bern High School of New Bern, N.C., has long been recognised as a subject of major importance. Until a few years ago boys had shown no desire to take part in the courses offered to the girls, but in recent years considerable demand has come from the boys for certain aspects of home economics training. These boys have desired a course for boys rather than a part of the present course for girls. It was found that the superintendent of schools was very reluctant to consider such a course. The principal of the high school, several members of the school hoard, and a few mothers and fathers questioned the need of such a course la home economics for boys.
