Training of Teachers for Vocational Industrial Schools: Some Future Prospects


by David Snedden - 1924

There is as yet no system of vocational industrial schools in the United States. Here and there are found experimental all-day schools, touching, as it were, the fringes of this great field of work.

So far as the present writer is aware, rio one of these incipient trade schools has yet reached the point where its training can be substituted in lieu of a complete apprenticeship training; if that has been standardized for the vocation. The best that has been accomplished is to have a year or two years on apprenticeship allowed for two or more years of training in the industrial school.
