To the editor:
On Sept. 19, the Daily Journal reported that Center Grove is considering eliminating family and consumer science courses at both middle schools and adding more foreign language courses in their place.
Never have the courses being considered for replacement been needed more than now. The number of empty houses, bankruptcies, increased need at food pantries, unemployed, etc. prove that need. As Katie Hoffman said, students don’t always learn the essential life skills they need at home. Ignorance can be very painful and expensive.
