The teaching and learning of Home Economics becomes so crucial in this current globalization and technological era, because it’s main purpose is to provide strong bases for students about the importance of family unity and welfare. The philosophical bases about the significance of Home management as a course are:

(1)   Democratic life of a family helps establish a democratic nation.

(2)   Every family has different beliefs about social and economic values, because such beliefs depend very much on the intended purposes and mission of the family. Thus, the quality of family life depends relatively on the understanding about the values of life of the community where the family is living; and the family can do and perform the best with its own human resources to help develop the nation (Rifai, 1983; Nurlaela, 2010).
