Vocational Guidance for Girls

Vocational Guidance for Girls by Marguerite Stockman Dickson
By:

VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE FOR GIRLS
By MARGUERITE STOCKMAN DICKSON
A FOREWORD
Fortunate are we to have from the pen of Mrs. Dickson a book on the vocational guidance of girls. Mrs. Dickson has the all-round life experiences which give her the kind of training needed for a broad and sympathetic approach to the delicate, intricate, and complex problems of woman's life in the swiftly changing social and industrial world. Mrs. Dickson was a teacher for seven years in the grades in the city of New York. She then became the partner of a superintendent of schools in the business of making a home. In these early homemaking years there came from the pen of Mrs. Dickson a series of historical books for the grades which have placed her among the leading educational writers of the country. During the long sickness of her husband she filled for a while two administrative positions--homemaker and superintendent of schools.
