Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine what factors the administrators and homemaking teachers believed were most influential in recruiting students for home economics, who they believed exerted the most influence on college enrollment, and what they believed were the feelings of the students concerning the homemaking program. The study was concerned with personal information about the superintendents and homemaking teachers and their reasons for the apparent lack of expressed interest in home economics. This information was thought to have indications for improvements in the homemaking program, in preparation for guidance, and in the understandings and beliefs concerning home economics. The writer hoped the ultimate findings could be used to attract more students into the field of home economics.
