Charges Against the Federal Board for Vocational Education, Vol. 1 of 2 : Hearings and Report of the Committee on Education, House of Representatives, Sixty-Sixth Congress, Second Session; March 2-April 23, 1920 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Charges Against the Federal Board for Vocational Education, Vol. 1 of 2: Hearings and Report of the Committee on Education, House of Representatives, Sixty-Sixth Congress, Second Session; March 2-April 23, 1920 I understand that he has been personally conducting this investiga tion into the activities of the Federal Vocational Education Board. He states that the central office here in Washin ton has sent out what has come to be known as the hard boiled or er to its agents who were invested with the duty of passin upon applications of disabled soldiers for treatment under the reha ilitation act. I think we are all more or less disappointed with the results that have been Obtained by the board. I think we feel that they have had time enough, that they have had money enou h to accomplish more than has been accomplished. We passed t e law about six months before any disabled soldier applied for treatment. They have had time enough, it seems to me, to make their plans if they had been competent to administer this great trust and to get things in readiness for the re ception Of the soldiers and to give them actual treatment, but up to the 17th of January, as I understand it, less than 300 men had been actually turned out and given em loyment, and a great many thousands of men whose applications ave been passed upon are sti l awaiting training, and a good deal of the training that has been given has not been at all practical.
