The influence of industrial vocational education is having its effect upon practices and methods of commercial education. The practice of industrial education of analyzing a curriculum of subjects containing values of vocational work, related vocational, and non-vocational subjects is causing the examination of commercial education with a view to a more careful practice with respect to like items. This evolution of commercial education has resulted in a new and better conception of proper procedure and an attempt to meet the needs of children who attend high school and desire instruction in commercial subjects. This bulletin covers the following related topics: (1) Development of commercial education in public schools; (2) Federal Board for Vocational Education; (3) Provision for commercial education; (4) Report of the Committee on Business Education: Commission on the Reorganization of Secondary Education; and (5) School Surveys and Commercial Education.
