Date: January 1949
Creator: Greathouse, Charles Simmons
Description: "This study shows three things: (1) a precedent for the expenditure of public funds to teach electricity in our public high schools has already been established by the school system in the larger school systems of Texas, (2) the rural families living on electrified farms in the North Texas area want instruction of this type given to the boys and girls in their communities, and (3) both the rural people and the professional people of the North Texas area believe that instruction dealing with the use of electricity and electrical equipment had spread until by 1935 more than twenty-one million homes, about eighty percent of the total in America at that time, were electrified, only eleven American farms out of every 100 had central-station electricity. More than five million American farms lacked electric service. "--leaf 50.

To Determine If the Industrial Arts Teachers of Texas Need Or Want State-Wide Industrial Arts Supervision

To Determine If the Industrial Arts Teachers of Texas Need Or Want State-Wide Industrial Arts Supervision

Date: June 1947
Creator: Money, Homer E.
Description: Industrial Arts today is included in a majority of the large high school curricula, and most school administrators do not consider the school program well rounded unless such work is offered. However, the Industrial Arts teachers of Texas do not have the advantage of a supervisor in their field of work. Each school is an entity in itself. There is no concerted state-wide program, no link between widely diversified needs and situations, no one to advise the young teacher beginning his work, and no one to aid the more experienced teachers in different situations. The State Department of Education recommends a uniform course of study, but each teacher is free to use his own interpretation of what he should teach and what he should not teach. Educators, mindful of the beneficial results of supervision in other fields, have asked for a State Supervision of Industrial Arts, and provision has been made in the next school budget for such an official if the Legislature approves. 1 The purpose of this investigation is to determine, if possible, whether a supervisory program is needed or wanted by the Industrial Arts teachers of Texas.
