Kerschensteiner, J. Dewey, K. Marx, V.A. Lay, and others. Most of these trends have had some influence on the development of thought of vocational training in Lithuania. Lithuanian educators, discussing both general and specific issues of vocational training (e.g., manual work in primary grades, school work training – test plot, etc.), quite often relied on the works of aforementioned Western authors.
