The purpose of this study is to trace the development of the curricula for commercial teacher training in the United States in order to discover its implications for the academic and professional preparation of teachers of business subjects. An attempt will be made to trace the evolution of secondary business education in order to discover the relationships existing between the aims and curricula of secondary business education on the one hand, and the preparation of business teachers and the curricula devised for their training on the other. Recommendations based upon the findings, will be made for the purpose of harmonizing the academic and professional program set up for the preparation of teachers of business subjects with the present dynamic nature of business education as it is evolving in our secondary schools. The problem is discussed in this chapter under three headings: (A) Delimitation; (B) Validation; and (C) Analysis.
