Abstract: In an attempt to determine wherein the present commercial curriculum of the Greenville, North Carolina, High School might more adequately prepare the student to secure an acceptible position, make good, and eventually take his place in the business life of the commmunity, this study has been made. The courses offered in the present curriculum have been the result of tradition to a great extent. Very little if any research has been made as to the needs or employment possibilities of the community of Greenville, North Carolina. Research is being conducted in practically every field and there is no manifest reason for allowing a high school business course to remain invariable. Since it is generally conceded that there is a vocational element in the objectives of business education, it follows that some students are being educated for business positions and occupations.
