Home Economics


This thesis is written for the purpose of acquainting the readers with home economic achievements in Brazos County, Texas (particularly among Negroes) and to suggest methods of improving the instruction and application to promote better home making. Home Economics shall be discussed as outlined in the state course of study bulletin number 302 which has for its aim the development of those ideals which make for better home making and home life. Also the main aspects as embraced or treated by extension service which has for its aim the improvement of rural homes from an economical, healthful, comfortable and attractive standpoint to the extent that their previously drab, empty, and monotonus type of home life becomes a pleasanter and better place in which to live. The manotany of this home and community life is very often relieved by recreational groups which had their origin largely in the extension service program.

The data were compiled from information obtained by personal observations, various reports and work as found in the course of study bulletin number 302 and The Teaching of Home Economics by Brown and Haley.
