The "economics" part of home economics was the most informative part of the class, or at least I thought so. We learned how to create household budgets, balance a checkbook, etc. Real life skills. Schools should still be teaching this sort of thing, in my opinion.
A few years ago my adult daughter came to me, checkbook in hand, and asked me to show her how to write a check. I couldn't believe she didn't know how to do this. Apparently, it's not something they teach kids anymore.
Part of the class was about marriage. For a lot of us, those were the times of the "test drive" first. Sometimes even then it didn't work out. Maybe it would have been better if "Parley nois a bois, no par de mariage".
