It is wrong to think that industrial education had its beginning recently. Merely because industry has made revolutionary changes and advancements during recent years does not mean that industrial education has not been in existence for a long time. Industrial education in some forms is probably as old as the human race.
In the development of industrial education it is interesting to note that both anciently and during modern times the emphasis has been placed on the value of handwork. The cave man's life depended upon his skill and ability to make and use the various types of primitive tools. We still place great importance on our knowledge of handwork.
