Consumer Sciences Education
Public Policy

The overall goal of the National Coalition for Family and Consumer Sciences Education is to increase communication and project a unified voice and focus on Family and Consumer Sciences education issues.

Issue Briefs

A new addition to the public policy section will be a series of issue briefs focused on important societal issues impacting family and consumer sciences. The first addressed the obesity crisis and the important role family and consumer sciences teachers take to address the issue locally. More briefs will be posted in the future!
