The development of instructional materials that support the contents and practices described above is essential to support the work that takes place in the classrooms. Only in this way can there be on the part of the educator and of the one educated a genuine discovery of personal aptitudes so that the proper choice of a specialized pursuit in later life may be indicated. But none the less there is a limitation of intelligence to technical and non-humane, non-liberal channels, so far as the work does not take in its social bearings.

    There is doubtless—in general accord with the principle of habit—a tendency for every distinctive vocation to become too dominant, too exclusive and absorbing in its specialized aspect. These problems, which emerged in a different context, are not totally alien to us and we may wonder if some of our own problems could benefit from the analysis offered by Dewey in Democracy and Education, about the effects of industrial development on individuals or social cohesion. It would be quite possible for a narrowly conceived scheme of vocational education to perpetuate this division in a hardened form. For modern psychology emphasizes the radical importance of primitive unlearned instincts of exploring, experimentation, and 'trying on. The first is by offering equal opportunities to children of different socio-economic and cultural backgrounds.
