DEAN FORDYCE AT CONVOCATION
Said That Secondary 8choolB Have
Existed Solely to Prepare for
IS AGAINST hADlCAL CHANGE
Dean Fordyce of the Teachers Col
lege made a plea this morning at con
vocation for the Introduction of vo
cational training In the public schools.
Ho said that tho secondary schools
have existed mainly to prepare Btu
dents for college entrance and for
professional life while nino-tenths of
those enrolled never reach college;
the great majority being driven by
economic conditions into commercial
and industrial life for which they aro
He showed that tho Introduction of
machinery and tho extreme tendencies
of specialization mako It impossible
for our youth to learn tho crafts and
trades by apprenticeship as in former
days. This makes it imperative that
the school shall furnish this training.
The speaker stated that 50 per cent
of the skilled workmen In our fac
tories and a much larger per cent of
the foremen are foreign trained. Be
cause of lack of preparation our boys
and girls are compelled to enter tho
humblest places in the ranks of toll.
The speaker claimed that there Is
but one solution of the difficulty
that of France and Germany; it Is
tho two-course plan for our high
schools; one looking toward tho uni
versity and the learned professions,
tho other toward tho craftB and
trades; one in which tho college
preparatory ideal predominates, tho
other tho vocational.
The most democratic plan on which
to proceod 1b to provldo each child
with such training us will enable him
to make the most of such talent and
time as he has.
In conclusion ho referred to tho
danger coming from the enthusiasm
exhibited by tho apostleB of the new
doctrine; for Just as secondary edu
cation has been up to tho present
dominated by tho cultural Idea, there
Is now danger that tho practical may
be over-emphasized. It Is as great a
mistake to produce men with a vca
tlon without an education as it has
been In the past to produce men
with an education without a vocation.
