Vocational Homemaking Education: Some Problems and Proposals
by David Snedden - 1919
The education of women and girls for the homemaking vocations has evolved to a point where many specific problems can be diagnosed. It is the purpose of this article to state a few of these problems, to suggest some methods for their further study, and to submit certain tentative proposals for criticism. As far as practicable, the methods employed will be those being developed in educational sociology, namely, to base all proposed aims of education upon an analysis and evaluation of these needs of social groups to be realized in and through education, school and non-school. The standards will be those increasingly accepted in the general theory of vocational education. The article is designed primarily for educators engaged in research in the fields of homemaking and household arts education, or in administering state and national legislation intended to promote such education.
