What's Cooking?

It comes as something of a surprise to me to learn that schoolchildren are not being taught to cook. Are you sure? Anyway, the usual response has come to any suggestion of this kind, namely that there is not the available curriculum time. In which case, what, exactly, is currently taking up that time? And why, exactly?


  1. Quite - I'm 34 years of age and male, and I did Home Economics at school up until GCSE 'options' time. When did it stop?

  2. Well, indeed. On supply, I actually taught it once, within the last three years or so.
