While you were at home during the coronavirus lockdown, did you find yourself trying to learn new “home skills?”
With people turning to things like baking and sewing, some for the first time, Family and Consumer Science teachers have suddenly found their subject in high demand.

We also highlight the shortage of FCS teachers across the country, and the hope that this crisis may encourage more people to become teachers.
