The cooperative plan makes it possible for some boys and girls to continue in school, because of wages...
Página 24 - ... is a new problem and they appear not to know quite what to do with it. It is perfectly clear that industrial education calls for new and different courses of instruction from those designed to fit for non-industrial pursuits, and the question is whether these constitute a part of our public-school duty or whether the peculiar educational needs of industry and of industrial people may be left to take care of themselves.
