Excerpt from Report of the Survey of the Grafton City Schools Everywhere a very commendable attitude towards general educa tion was manifest. Superintendents and those who direct the work of young men and women expressed preference for employing boys and girls who have a high school education. If your committee may judge from the conferences and interviews with many of your citizens as well as with employersz the desire and demand for industrial educa tion in your schools is strong and urgent. There is also a willingness on the part of employers, where it is practicable, to cooperate with the schools in providing for shop work on the part plan system of school attendance and shop work for which the boys will secure school credit. It is true that any school system should contribute to the moral and intellectual welfare of the community that supports the system. It is also equally true that any school system should in a very direct way reflect and contribute to the major industries of the community which supports the system of schools. In fact the moral and intellectual welfare of any people is contributed to in the largest and most real sense by aiding such people in their occupations. The major part of life is work, either with the head or hands or with both head and hands. The way to enrich life, to say nothing of increased efficiency, is to rationalize the occupation of the individual. Dull and deaden ing routine and drudgery are raised to the plane of hopeful and life producing work by rationalizing the occupation. In this way educa tion is life and life in turn reflects education. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
