The problem of this study arises out of the conflict of aims of business education. Study was given to the aims of the present, existing curriculums and practices in selected Negro high schools of East Texas with the hope of gaining insight as to how well these curriculums were serving the needs of this area.

While this study makes no attempt to end the confusion of thoughts by introducing a new philosophy filled with all the fundamentals to cure all ills, it does purpose to study the curriculums and practices in effect in the selected schools, and to make an evaluation of their contributions to the aims and objectives of business education as revealed by the writer's findings of the ideas expressed by some of the leading authorities in the business education world.

The scope of this study is limited to four selected schools of East Texas. This East Texas area was chosen because of its recent accreditation by the Southern Association of Secondary Schools.25
