The past two years have witnessed a continued and an increasing emphasis upon vocational-industrial and manual-arts types of work in the school curriculum, and a further adjustment of the work to make it a still more effective factor in the realization of the aims of the public schools. In general there has been considerable growth in the enrollments in these types of courses. In the vocational-industrial courses the increase in enrollment is particularly noticeable in part-time and evening classes. This is indicative of the growing recognition of the value of these types of classes in a vocational-industrial program. Manual arts, in the junior high school grades, is more and more becoming a required subject. In the senior high school grades a more thoughtful consideration than formerly is now generally given to the organization of courses in accordance with the needs of the different groups and with regard to specific ways in which the training may function in contributing to the objectives of the secondary school. Contents of this bulletin include: (1) Causes stimulating the development of industrial education; (2) Variety in courses and instructional organization; (3) Improved housing facilities; (4) Part-time and evening schools; (5) Age for entering employment increasing; (6) Printing; (7) Model boat and model airplane building; (8) School exhibits; (9) Guidance; (10) Tests; (11) Teachers; and (12) Summary of some present conditions, tendencies, and problems relative to industrial education.
