    School subject Home Economics provides quality knowledge of solutions to various problems of life for students in elementary school. The experts from IFHE (International Federation for Home Economics) are trying to develop Home Economics school subject from its ancient basics of kitchen tasks to modern challenges. With progress in society and changes in lifestyle, they are aware of individual's role changes in society. Even though the subject Home Economics includes many modern topics, both scientific and expert, there are still some general negative attitudes present. Main goal of the research is the evaluation of elementary school teachers attitude towards the school subject Home Economics. The empiric research analysed attitude from 229 teachers. Analyses confirmed that attitude of elementary school teachers towards Home Economics subject is positive. It also showed that teachers teaching the subject and teachers with specialized education in subject have better attitude than other teachers. Years of service do not affect the attitude. No critical subjects were noticed in attitude to school subject Home Economics. The subject was also not deemed hard by teachers, but their attitude nevertheless indicates that subject Home Economics is equal to all other elementary school subjects. There was agreement among teachers that subject should be included in third educational period. Teachers not teaching the subject Home Economics also provided positive feedback about teaching competence of their colleagues, teachers of Home Economics. Future research could include attitudes towards elementary school subject Home Economics among other social groups, especially parents and children.
