There is nothing so constant today as the change in the teaching of industrial arts courses. The knowledge explosion is a tremendous catalytic agent in education today. It is vital, therefore, that teachers in electronics utilize all possible ways and means to establish new goals for high school students that will help to improve their place in the industrial and space world of economics.
After the close of World War II, significant technological changes related to industrial activity encouraged rapid expansion of the construction and mechanical industries. With technological changes occurring in manufacturing industries, new types of jobs were created. To fill these positions, secondary schools were asked to supply the employees trained in technical knowledge related to mathematics and science rather than tradesmen.
The investigator is of the opinion that the techniques and methods presently used must be improved. Moreover, it is eminently clear that better ways must be sought in helping students obtain these goals.
Statement of the problem. The problem shall be to compare the electronics program of Booker T. Washington High School, Houston, Texas with the programs of two other schools in two different districts in the Gulf Coast Area.
More specifically, this study sought answers to the following questions:
1. How do the objectives of the electronics program in the two school districts compare with those at Booker T. Washington High School?
2. How does the instructional organization of the electronics program in the two school districts compare with the one at Booker T. Washington High School?
3. How do instructional techniques utilized in the two school districts compare with those employed at Booker T. Washington High School?
4. How do the instructional aids utilized in the two school districts compare with those used at Booker T. Washington High School?
5. How do the methods of evaluation used in the two school districts compare with those utilized at Booker T. Washington High School?
6. How does the content of the course for a one-year period in the two school districts compare with the one at Booker T. Washington High School?
