Abstract
Woodworking classes are becoming a popular choice for high school students in their curriculums. Concerns regarding student safety and the impact of lumber usage on the environment are some issues that supply grounds for exclusion of the course. Both doing hands-on work and the process of completing a project have been shown to be healthy for their educational development. The sense of achievement that accompanies completing a job successfully is healthy for students’ self confidence. If managed correctly and ethically, with the environment in mind, using materials economically, woodworking courses can be essential in helping students succeed in their educational careers, along with their lives.

As each side vigorously defends the extremes of their positions, they have apparently and unwittingly created a silent majority that may also wish to be heard.…
