BELL, CHARLES L.
THE 1962-63 HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL'S ORGANIZATION REPORT FROM THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION AND SURVEY RESPONSES FROM 84.2 PERCENT OF THE INDUSTRIAL ARTS TEACHERS WERE USED AS DATA FOR THIS STUDY. OF THE 547 SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS, 480 OFFERED INDUSTRIAL ARTS. ALL 95 JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS OFFERED INDUSTRIAL ARTS. GENERAL WOODWORKING WAS OFFERED BY 68.4 PERCENT OF THE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS, GENERAL SHOP BY 56 PERCENT, AND DRAFTING BY 54.5 PERCENT. THERE WERE 45 OTHER COURSES IDENTIFIED AS BEING TAUGHT IN AT LEAST ONE SCHOOL. THERE WERE 13 COURSES IDENTIFIED AS BEING TAUGHT IN THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS. THE STUDY IDENTIFIED 33 GENERAL SHOP AREAS IN SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS AND 25 IN JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS. THERE WERE 24 TYPES OF UNIT SHOPS IDENTIFIED IN SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS AND 14 IN JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS. INDUSTRIAL ARTS ENROLLMENT IN SENIOR HIGH WAS 23,226 AND IN JUNIOR HIGH WAS 13,740. OF THE 556 TEACHERS, 232 TAUGHT THREE OR FEWER CLASSES. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT--(1) MORE SCHOOLS SHOULD CONSOLIDATE FOR IMPROVEMENT AND EFFICIENCY, (2) WOODWORKING IS OVEREMPHASIZED, (3) SEVERAL UNIT SHOPS ARE REALLY GENERAL SHOPS, (4) MORE ADEQUATE SHOP LIBRARY FACILITIES ARE NEEDED, (5) INSTRUCTIONAL CONTENT SHOULD BE STANDARIZED, (6) INDUSTRIAL ARTS TEACHERS' SPECIALIZED TRAINING IS NOT BEING UTILIZED FULLY, (7) IT IS ECONOMICALLY ADVANTAGEOUS TO OBTAIN A MASTER'S DEGREE, AND (8) TEACHERS SHOW LITTLE INTEREST IN PROFESSIONAL INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION ORGANIZATIONS.
