One of the outstanding concerns of advocates of Industrial Arts Education in the elementary schools is to prove that industrial arts merits a place of importance in the curriculum of the elementary public schools. This study is offered with the hope that enough information may be given to bring to the attention of educators the importance of an Industrial Arts Program in the elementary schools.
It is realized by the writer that it is not the purpose of industrial arts to offer training for saleavle skills. However, it is also realized that if the objectives of industrial arts are to be accomplished, such as the development of a certain amount of skills in basic industrial processes, and appreciation for good design, then the products of the industrial arts programs should possess some degree of skills. Such a program as proposed will provide better trained individuals for production and consumption and enable men and women of tomorrow to fit better into this complex society in which we live.
The purpose of this study is to: (1) determine an industrial arts program for the elementary public schools, (2) determine some of the contributions which industrial arts can make to meet the needs of youth in elementary schools.
