    Teacher is one the key factors in education, because it is the teacher who plans and carries out the lessons. The teacher determines what, how much and how the pupils will learn in such a way to provide that the pupils’ development is as comprehensive as possible. Because Slovenian legislation allows primary teachers also to teach Home Economics in 5th grade of primary school, we researched the experience of teachers in teaching this subject. The research was qualitative and we designed a questionnaire for obtaining data. Because of the poor response from the teachers, the research sample was only 30 persons. We have determined that primary teachers, who teach Home Economics in 5th grade most commonly state that this is part of their work obligation. Research results show that teachers evaluate that the impact of studies to the knowledge of contents of the modules Home Economics and Textile and Clothing is weak. They state general knowledge as the principal factor, which mostly contributes to the knowledge of the above mentioned modules. The research results have enabled us insight in the experience teachers have in teaching Home Economics. The research also presents certain starting point for future research in the area and in addition allows the creation of measures, which would improve the education of Home Economics.
