LETTERS OF TRANSMITTAL.

DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE AND LABOR,

OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY,
Washington, September 14, 1911.

I have the honor to transmit herewith the Twenty-fifth Annual Report of the Commissioner of Labor, entitled "Industrial Education in the United States."

Respectfully,

BENJ. S. CABLE,

Acting Secretary.

The SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE AND LABOR,

BUREAU OF LABOR, Washington, September 14, 1911.

SIR: I have the honor to transmit herewith the Twenty-fifth Annual Report of the Commissioner of Labor, entitled "Industrial Education in the United States."

The Eighth Annual Report, issued in 1892, and the Seventeenth Annual Report, issued in 1902, both dealt with this subject, but during the last few years there has been such a marked growth of interest in industrial education and such a call for information as to the present status of this branch of education in the United States. that the Bureau undertook this present study in response to an insistent demand.

The purpose of the study, the results of which are embodied in this report, was not to go into any theoretical discussion of the subject of industrial education, but rather to bring together the comprehensive data respecting the various systems of industrial education in this country and to analyze and present the information in such way as to be of the most use to those interested in furthering the development of this important branch of education.

The work has been carried on and the report prepared under the supervision of Mr. Charles H. Winslow and Mr. Jesse C. Bowen of the Bureau of Labor.

I am, very respectfully,

CHAS. P. NEILL,

Commissioner.

Secretary of Commerce and Labor.

To Hon. CHARLES NAGEL,
