Summary

The time has come to reexamine the role of industrial arts in the high schools. Our society is no longer in the industrial era but rather in the post-industrial era which is characterized by pressing social problems. Solutions must be found for the problems of pollution, power generation, housing, transportation, communication, conservation, more effective resource utilization and industrial productivity. The role industrial arts can play in these areas of concern is not one of finding solutions but rather one of educating the citizenry to be aware of the implications of these problems. There is no doubt about the extent of our technological know-how; the question is how to reduce the ever-widening gap between the technologist and the great masses of people who use or must make decisions about the application, acceptance, or rejection of the technology. This proposal outlines a system of study for the senior high school that will educate citizens to make intelligent decisions concerning the future application of our great wealth of technological know-how.
