Purpose of the study
Prior to the twentieth century, the administrators of educational institutions in the united states did not assume the responsibility of setting up organized placement and follow-up programs for persons enrolled in their schools. However, by 1910 it had been firmly established that the school is the most strategic place in which to offer such services. Some of the functions of guidance had already been instituted in Boston, Cincinnati, Chicago, and other cities. The study of the programs in placement and follow-up seems to indicate that wherever placement and follow-up services are available, the students receive more help in making the necessary adjustments, both vocational and social. this seems to be especially true in the field of industrial education and in other vocational fields.
