Excerpt from Training Industrial Workers

"Why not try education?" is the question which must occur over and over again to one who studies the adjustments and readjustments of industry. The child in school must be brought to understand the industrial problems ahead of him, and no less the worker in the shop or factory must be brought to see that only through increasing enlightenment represented by education, will he be able to solve his life problems, increase his productive power, and make progress toward full stature as a citizen.

Putting industrial problems into the schools and putting education into the factory involve a high degree of co-operation among all the persons concerned. They must make contacts, get acquainted, and learn from each other. How can these contacts be found? Why are they necessary? What will happen to schools which do not co-operate with industry, and what will happen to industrial establishments whose workers have not the habit of studying and learning? These questions must impel serious thinking men and women forward to find the right relationships between doing and thinking.

Dr. Kelly's book is written to tell industrial managers and educational directors about the lessons which both school people and manufacturers have learned in shop and factory education, and to show how these lessons can be applied to particular establishments. He brings in review the successful accomplishments in vocational education, with the reasons for their success. He points out the need on the one hand for quick training in skill and on the other for the more fundamental education which shall give knowledge of the correct principles back of successful business and for the development of responsibility.
