KIRKUS REVIEW

The new trend in vocational education and in wider horizons is nowhere more evident than in the viewpoint of the educational program today, in the armed forces, in industry. This is a broad view of what is being done in Army, Air Force, Navy, Merchant Marine, with supplementary educational facilities, correspondence courses, university extension courses all available for their men. There is an analysis of the vocational needs of the armed forces, of the occupations therein which have the greatest possible post-war value, of the links with the colleges the country over. Then the training programs in industry, the factory schools. Three steps are suggested to readers seeking help:- (a) take inventory of qualifications; (b) consider secondary skills and hobbies; (c) develop facilities. Advice on how to go about finding your place in the war, how to get out of the wrong and into the right place. Factual data regarding schools, etc. in supplement. Good introductory survey, superficial but not intended otherwise.
