Excerpt: "In this study an attempt is made to determine the status of business education in the Negro high schools and colleges of Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri. Fifty-four questionnaires were sent out, two were sent to the two Negro high schools in Kansas, sixteen were sent to the Negro schools in Oklahoma, twenty-four to the Negro high schools and colleges in Arkansas, and twelve to the Negro schools in Missouri. Of the fifty-four questionnaires sent out, thirty-three were returned, two from the schools in Kansas, eleven from Oklahoma, twelve from Arkansas, and eight from Missouri. Twenty-three of the thirty-three schools reporting offered business subjects in the school program. [...] The writer's conclusion is that business training, seemingly, is in the background of the school program in the majority of the Negro schools in this area."
