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.
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!
