Vocational guidance is an educational service and should be considered an intergral part of the educational program carried on by the recognized educational agency of the community. This point was employed by Myers some years ago when helping the youth to obtain reliable and significant information upon which to base a choice of occupations, aiding him to find a suitable opportunity to begin work in the occupation of his choice, and giving him additional assistance as needed during the period of adjustment and further training after employment begins are just as truly educational service as teaching the same youth history or mathematics.*^ There are two main phases of concepts of guidance. These are (1) distributive and (2) the adjustive phases. By number-one, we mean to distribute youth as effectively as possible to educational and vocational opportunities. By the second we mean to help the individual to make the optimal adjustment to educational and vocational situations. It is the nature of the distributive phase of guidance to be concerned primarily with those activities of life in which differentiation is the rule.
