Introduction--Explanation of the Problem
Statement of the Problem.--It has long been the desire of the author to discover for himself and for others whether or not the beneficial experiences of industrial arts, as taught in the Kalamazoo Central High School, are being enjoyed by a typical cross section of the total number of boys enrolled in the school. Is industrial arts benefiting boys who are representative of the total population, or is it proving of benefit to a number who are characteristically different from those not electing it? This problem is one of concern not only to the author but to other fellow teachers and administrators as well. It is one that is immediate and important to the professional planning and attitude of the teachers and also to the welfare of all the male students.
