    Teachers views are important factors for gaining skills in home economics education. It is important to adjust the skills to fit the needs of an individual as well as the society. This influences the quality of life of teachers. The purpose of this master’s thesis is to establish teachers viewpoints about the meaning of knowledge and skills in home economics during the pupil’s primary education. This focus group included the teachers which are already teaching home economics and related topics. It is thought, and the results analysis also showed teachers having positive relationship between knowledge and skills and the quality of life of the pupils during their schooling and in later stages of life. Teachers believe it is important for pupils to develop social skills, nutrition education, home textile production, economics, consumer education, sustainability, and health education. Based on teachers recommendations, there is a need to update home economics curriculum to appropriately include the home economics subject in the primary schools.
