Should cooking be taught at schools?

Published: 2022-07-11 11:46:13

Editor's note:Starting with the upcoming fall semester, students in primary and middle schools will have at least one course every week on basic household skills such as cleaning and cooking, as well as skills in cutting-edge technology including 3D printing and laser cutting, according to a new curriculum standard for labor education in compulsory education released by the Ministry of Education. Should household skills be made compulsory at schools?


By learning basic skills like cooking, cleaning and maintaining home appliances, children can learn how to take care of themselves and live independently. Parents won't always be there to help their children with every problem they'll encounter in their life. They need to learn new things, make mistakes, solve problems andgrow from their experiences. It is essential for children to come to grips with these important lifesaving skills as early as possible.
