Training Wildland Managers
Abstract:Critics of forest education in America have frequently expressed their views in the Journal. Now a forest school dean sets forth his perplexities in trying to devise the best possible curriculum for wildland managers. The all-pervading question is how to pack into four years of study, liberal education for good citizenship and a satisfying life, and at the same time turn out men who can pass civil service examinations and step into responsible public or private professional positions with a minimum of on-the-job training.
