Abstract

The objective of the course, the general business, as taught in the secondary school have been changing over the past century. An early advocate of a general business course was Frederick G. Nichols, of Harvard University in 1918. He wrote one of the first texts in the field. The term used by Nichols was "Junior Business Training." This course was a short, intensive one with both pre-vocational and vocational objectives. The course was intended to meet the then prevalent need of many junior high school students who were dropping out of school and finding employment in stores and offices.
