Abstract: With the growth of the homemaking education program in the secondary school, the teacher has become increasingly aware of the responsibility of so managing the resources of the homemaking department as to insure a smooth running organization which involves the same features as managing a home on a business-like basis. Because some knowledge of financial administration is essential in daily living, pupils it is believed, will gain much valuable experience if they are allowed to help manage the finances of the homemaking department. This was indicated in a statement by Spafford: One of the most fruitful ways of teaching good management is for pupils to work in a well-organized, smooth-running department, to see resources studied thoughtfully and used wisely, to see before them constantly in operation the management principles which they are studying. Still more effective is to use these management problems as teaching problems, for the girls to participate in planning what needs to be done and how and when it is to be done..l
