Sir: In no other country in the world do so many boys and girls receive regular high-school education of a general cultural typo as in the United States and the number of such boys and girls in this country is rapidly increasing, having more than doubled since 1905 and increased more than 60 per cent since 1910. But American democratic ideals demand not only that all should have as nearly as possible equal opportunity for education, but also that all men and women should be employed in that form of work by which they may contribute most to their own happiness and to the common good. In our complex industrial and economic life, it is little less wasteful to leave boys and girls without assistance and guidance in selecting their occupations and finding employment than it would be to leave them unaided in obtaining education.
