dc.description.abstract This thesis is concentrated on the system of seven schools of vocational education in Jordan. Jordan is a new kingdom and its system in this field is new. Recently, the need of vocational education increased mainly due to the Palestine crisis in 1948. Hunger and idleness attacked many young men, and so the government, with the help of D.N.R.W.A. and Point Four, tried to open technical schools suitable for the different communities. These boys were given another chance to specialize in a vocational field which they entered later. This would enable them to live a comfortable, useful and happy life. Amongst the variety of training practiced in these Special Schools, there are in the following: I. The Amman Trade School includes:- (1) Carpentry including cabinet making. (2) Hot iiU1d cold metal- work. (3) Motor car machines. (4) Electricity including radio repair. II. The Arab Development School includes: 1) Agriculture. (2) Bakery. (3) Shoe repairing. (4) Farming. (5) Iron Smithing. (6) Carpentry. III. AI-Alaiah Blind School includes:- (1) Knitting. (2) Education handwork for the training of the use of the Braille System. (3) Bag-making, brush-making and basketry. III. AI-Alaiah Blind School includes:- (1) Knitting. (2) Education handwork for the training of the use of the Braille System.
