Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Investigation of the ideological origins of US vocational education in the early twentieth century, seeking to map the main agents involved in the approval of the Smith-Hughes law and its interests through bibliographic research. As a result, it was learned that in the process that culminated in the passage of the first law guaranteeing federal funding for vocational education in the United States, a coalition of actors was formed, whose cooperation would be quite improbable under all circumstances: workers, educators, industrial movements, farmers. In the midst of so many different interests and positions regarding the form that vocational education should take and the purposes it should serve, the most influential groups were able to unite around the desire to rationalize training for work without directly attacking the structure of classes and the capitalist system. The result that questions about the nature of work and inequality were turned into issues of education and training.
