Further, since the school is sensitive to the student's ultimate objective, employment, and employers needs, learning involves not only technical information, but the other qualitiesand attitudes that develop the total human being. Thus, the student is made aware of the need for self dicipline, neat appearance, clear and concise writing, confident speech, cooperation, honesty, and the many other characteristics that the employer finds desirable in a good employee."
