In the present study, the writer has attempted to make an investigation of the problem of the certification of commercial teachers in the secondary school level of the several states in the Union. The study has three purposes:

  1. To tabulate the requirements made by the various states for secondary school certification of commercial teachers.
  2. To set forth, by the method of comparison and contrast, the central tendencies and the differences that exist in these requirements.
  3. To suggest principles and standards to serve as a basis for a general plan for the certification of high school commercial teachers in the United States
