Bishop Kelley claims to be a “Life Preparatory” school, however it doesn’t even offer classes that can prepare students for life, besides Personal and Financial Literacy. BK should offer a home ec like class for students.

Many students at BK do know how to cook, clean and do laundry, but a lot of students don’t as well. Learning important life skills such as cooking a basic meal, cleaning properly, and knowing how to wash and fold clothes are necessary for high school students. Eventually they will go to college and their parents won’t be there to help them so they will need to know how to do these things. Imagine being a college student and having to ask your roommate or call your mom to ask how to start the washing machine or how to make pasta.

Mr. Franz says that the reason there is no home ec class is because it was popular back in the 1950’s to the 1970’s but now it isn’t a priority at BK and that home ec classes have taken a back seat. A former student at BK’s rival school, Bishop McGuiness, says that McGuiness used to offer Home ec as an elective. However students felt it wasn’t helping them so the school got rid of it. Sophomore Ellie Grace Herrold shared her opinion on the subject. 

“I would really like the class and I feel that some students could really benefit from it,” Herrold says.

All and all Bishop Kelley should offer a Home Ec. class.
