A. HOME ECONOMICS STUDIES IN THE 7-8-9 YEARS BASED UPON INDUSTRIAL ARTS IN GRADES 1-6 Aim. In the modern movement for the reorganization of the school system upon the 6-3-3 basis, there are naturally to be found two groups of girls in attendance at the junior high school, namely: (a) Those girls who will continue their school work through the senior high school and (b) Those girls whose school training will end with the work of the junior high school. Therefore in planning the course of study in home economics for the junior high school, provision must be made for both groups; and both groups should be handled in the same classes, in the seventh and eighth years, before the girls or their parents are able to decide definitely the possibilities for further education. This work in the judgment of the writers is as fundamental for the seventh and eighth grades as the study of industrial arts is in the first six grades. Therefore we believe that free election of home economics studies before the ninth grade is not desirable.
