Recognition of the Vocational objective of the high school implies an obligation for vocational guidance. The need for guidance relative to vocational subjects is as great as the need for guidance relative to the subjects not having direct vocational objectives. In fact the need probably is greater. But vocational guidance is not confined to securing efficient adjustment between the students and the Vocational subjects of the curriculum. It looks forward to the time when the student will engage in some vocational activity, and it endeavors to guide him so that there will be a minimum of maladjustment in his vocational life.

American democratic Ideals demand not only that all should have as nearly as possible equal opportunity for education, but also that all men and women should be employed in that form of work by which they may contribute most of their own happiness and to the common good. Hence if the high school is to prepare its students to be vocationally efficent, there is need for guiding them so that they will be equipped to make the optimum readjustments in this complex world of economic and social changes.
