Through the teaching of homemeking education for the past four years the investigator became interested in reasons, especially these reasons given by the girls themselves, as to why some girls elect homemaking education in high school and why others do not.

Apparently this question has been of interest to others es e number of studies have been made dealing with this subject. However, no such study has been made in this area of Virginia.

The purposes of this study were to determine why girls elected homemeking education and why they did not, the effect of academic requirements on the election or non-election of the course and to determine recommendations which might result in a larger proportion of students electing homemaking courses.
