A Comparative Study of Public and Private Secondary Schools' Business Education Curricula in Certain State Syllabi in Order to Present Differentiated Programs in This Area
World War II marked the beginning of a new period in business education in the United States. DUring and immediately after the war years there was a great demand for skilled clerical workers. Businessmen complained that the beginning workers they received from schools were not adequately trained to meet the requirements of modern business office operation. The newly employed workers, graduates of public and private business education courses, had received training in some or all of the courses that were then considered adequate to produce competent office workers: stenography, bookkeeping, and office practice. Few of the new employees had received training in basic business practices, or were familiar with the economics or actual operation of modern day businesses.
