The study of Home Science helps each people lead a more satisfying personal, family and community life because of the knowledge, understanding, skills and appreciation of cultural and spiritual values a pupil gained through the course. Home economics on the other hand counts as an interdisciplinary degree that focuses on the economics of running a household. It is an inter-disciplinary subject which includes classes in chemistry , food preparation, fine arts, accounting and basic-economics . Present research work explores the two interesting disciplines and further explore how they could impact in upgrading or enhancing school education. Further it studies the interrelationships amongst various barriers to successful teaching of home science and home economics in Indian secondary school setup using ISM model .
