Abstract

The purpose of this study is the examination of problemsolving and decision-making processes and their perceived importance for adult life and competency of respondents as achieved through the secondary home economics curriculum. Extant data was utilized. Respondents enrolled in home economics courses did perceive the importance of problem-solving and decision-making processes for adult living slightly more than respondents not enrolled in home economics courses. Results also showed enrollment in home economics courses increases the perceived competence of problem-solving and decisionmaking processes.
