I imagine that to many of my audience tonight there must
appear to be something incongruous about the title of this paper.
Technical Schools are well understood in these countries to mean
institutions that educate students for industrial life. There is
no very great definiteness attaching to the term Technical Education.
There is in particular some haziness as to where "teaching
the practice of any trade or industry or employment" begins
and "instruction in the principles of science and art applicable
to industries" leaves off. But there is a pretty widespread impression
that Technical Education means education for industry,
for the workshop; and that it does not include education for
commerce, for the counting-house. The latter has come to be
called "Commercial Education"; and schools for the promotion
of Commercial Education, where they exist, are usually called
Schools of Commerce rather than Technical Schools.
