How very German

Deutscher Hausfrauenbund, the German housewife association that she works for, offers courses in how to run a household, from practical skills to teaching young people how to budget. It also offers a \”master housewife\” qualification for the more ambitious.

That you might know how to do something is not enough. You must have a certificate to prove it.

  1. It’s a correspondence course I suppose? Otherwise what are they doing out of the house running around like floozies? That won’t get the dinner ready, and then what price some fancy certificate?

  2. Wow. I can (sort of) understand the resort to credentialization in the job market, I just woul dimagine tha tone would choose a wife on some other criteria than does she have a degree in housekeeping.
