QUOTE: Our system of education must advance in step with the demands of a changing society and economy. The reawakened national need for skilled workers makes it important that we place more emphasis on vocational training, through which our young people can develop the natural aptitudes which have made Maine famous as a reservoir of skilled and able workers…By vocational training they will better meet the tasks of their productive years and provide for well merited security in later years.
