From its origins in manual training programs in the Nineteenth Century, industrial arts today, in South Carolina, is viewed as a necessary part of education for all students, with specific objectives in harmony with those of education in general. Industrial arts draws its content and methodology from industrial technology and the social implications of the utilization of industrial knowledge, products, and services. It has many factors in common with other subject fields. At the elementary school level, its purpose is to provide opportunities to study how man satisfies his desire for material good. At the middle school level, the purpose is the study of industry through exploratory experiences. At the senior high school level, the student sees and experiences the broad realm of industrial processes in modern industry. Special programs for adults, handicapped, and gifted students are organized. Laboratory facilities must be planned with the relevant factors considered. Industrial Arts teacher preparation must include general and professional education and industrial arts courses. The management of industrial arts programs includes the State and local supervisors, the school principal, and the teacher. Safety practices must be observed by the instructor and students.
