    that I wrote that) there were high schools dedicated to teaching trades and not only those geared towards pushing kids into university. I think that these type of schools served an important and useful purpose; I am wondering why they were abandoned by the powers that be. Many kids do not want to go (or are lacking the skills for) university and their needs are not being met. Schools need to provide for the interests and skills of students and not the interests solely of employers; those would be schools that serve the needs of those attending them. I agree with T'pau that an examination of the discussion of education should be undertaken and would be a great diary. Now we need to get a volunteer for the diary.
