Excerpt from The Vocational-Guidance Movement Its Problems and Possibilities
Vocational guidance is bound up first of all with educational problems, and second with economic and social questions. On this account the reader must not expect a book on the subject to offer anything like a complete program or solution of the problem. The breadth of the field considered in this book, however, should prove a distinct advantage to those readers who are willing to set aside the desire for short cuts and to work out thoughtful proposals for bettering hopeful but inadequate pioneering on the one hand and complete neglect on the other.
If the movement for vocational guidance has so far proved but one thing, it is that the indefinite education for the vague thing called "complete living" or "physical, mental, and moral development" must give way to a well-considered aiming at specific needs - needs such as those represented by the individual's right, duty, and desire to fulfill family relationships, to vote intelligently, to maintain a good standard of living, and to cooperate in all phases of endeavor for human good. These specialized trainings are by no means narrow; it is the indefinite education which has been narrow.
