The purpose of this study was to determine some of the more significant aspects, with respect to diversification and similarity, of the industrial arts programs in the junior high schools of the four state region of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma for the school year 1963-1964. The major aspects examined were the general organization and programs of the junior high schools; the industrial arts courses and content, and the nature and organization of the industrial arts programs, the types of shops used, the grade levels of instruction, and the opinions of respondents concerning the programs. The general conclusion drawn from this study was that no basic minimum core of industrial arts exploratory experiences existed in the junior high schools of the region, experiences that would assure a transfer student of receiving the same basic industrial arts content from one school to another.
