Industrial Education


Anyone who endeavors to trace the growth and development of vocational education in the public high schools for negroes in texas up and including the first quarter of the twentieth century will undoubtedly discover, through a careful analysis of the literature, that vocational agriculture was given primary consideration. This can be attributed to the fact that the state of Texas was and still is primarily agricultural. While on the other hand attempts to expand the few then existing industrial education programs in the negro high schools, and to make industrial education an integral part of the curricula of the negro high schools without industrial education were for the most part in vain. This was especially true in and around the rural and farm areas.
