Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This bulletin was prepared by the Committee on Vocational Education of the National Education Association. The objective was to prepare a report which would be of assistance to the average superintendent of schools in a community of ordinary size, were he to feel the need of introducing such work into his home school system. The committee, which was appointed by the president of the National Education Association at the meeting of the department of superintendence, consisted of educators, social workers, labor representatives, and businessmen. From time to time meetings of this committee have been held both in connection with meetings of the National Education Association and in connection with meetings of the National Society for the Promotion of Industrial Education. Specific chapters have been prepared, not by the committee as a whole, but by individual members of the committee or by persons selected by this committee. Contents include: (1) History and development of vocational secondary education; (2) Types of vocational secondary schools; (3) Definitions, analysis, and illustrative examples; (4) Some ways in which vocational education may be introduced; (5) Methods of organization; (6) Methods of gathering data about industry and industrial workers; (7) Relation between vocational education and vocational guidance; (8) Proper methods of financing; and (9) Problems of vocational education. An index is also included, and an appendix presents a Digest of laws of States that provide State aid for a more or less State-wide system of vocational education.
