Abstract
Courses of study in farm mechanics for Negro high schools in Mississippi in the past have been based for the most part upon jobs and processes that the teacher himself thought should be included and given primary attention. Particular emphasis was placed, in the majority of cases, on a limited number of jobs and processes that could best be taught by the teacher. It seems that this system of selecting materials for a course of study in farm mechanics is a haphazard one and would not prove desirable in all cases. It does not appear that the skills taught in these courses could be very valuable to the majority of farm boys or that the results would justify the time spent by the boys in developing them together with the teacher’s time in giving instruction.
