Abstract or Summary
  • Purpose of the Study: The purpose of this study was to identify and compare the current written philosophical expressions of industrial arts with the acceptance of these by select groups of industrial arts teacher educators. Procedure: The data for this study were obtained through the use of a questionnaire derived from a frequency analysis of selected literature. The questionnaire was administered in teacher training institutions to industrial arts department heads or coordinators and a random member of that department who teaches at least one professional course. The Kendall Rank Correlation Coefficient, T (tau); the Kendall Coefficient of Concordance, W; and the Chi-square test were used in statistically analyzing the data. Conclusions: The following conclusions were drawn from the data obtained in this study: 1. There is a significant relationship of philosophical expressions of industrial arts, as expressed in periodicals, and the acceptance of these expressions by department heads or coordinators and selected members of industrial arts departments in teacher education institutions that offer the baccalaureate, masters, and doctoral level degree. 2. There is no significant difference of philosophical expressions between department heads or coordinators and selected members of industrial arts departments in teacher education institutions that offer the baccalaureate, masters, and doctoral level degrees. Recommendations: It is recommended that the findings of this study be taken into consideration by national leaders in industrial arts education in recognition of a need for change to a more contemporary philosophy of industrial arts. It is recommended that national leaders in industrial arts education recognize the need to up-date the philosophy of industrial arts to reflect the philosophical expressions derived from professional publications. It is further recommended that individuals or institutions take into consideration the findings of this study and recognize the need for change in program purpose before developing further programs in industrial arts. It is also recommended that further research be conducted to determine the objective criterion used by the respondents to arrive at the results of this study.
