System of Vocational Training
Union labor throughout the state
has begun a real fight against the at
tempt of Big Business to skip over
the dual system of vocational train
ing of the school children of the state.
In Chicago the fight is particularly
fierce. Here, however, labor has the
support of Ella Flagg YoUng. The
opposition is led by Edwin G. Cooley,
who used to be superintendent of
schools and is now trying to make the
schools merely a place where Big
Business can gather up recruits who
know nothing else bat how to do the
work assigned to them in shops, etc
The unit plan, for which labor is
fighting, gives the child the oppor
tunity of both taking up a trade and
continuing his other studies. Cooley
would have them learn a trade, noth
Next week a big discussion of the
subject will take place at Orchestra
hall. Victor A. Olander will talk on
vocational training from the labor
standpoint. Mrs. Young will advo
cate the unit plan. Cooley will be on
hand to plead for Big Business.
