Tech schools often draw flak from people who don’t understand what they are and what kind of education they can offer a young person starting a new career. Watching the Speed channel will pepper you with ads for Lincoln Tech’s automotive and welding degrees, and I wonder if that isn’t a bad way to go nowadays.
Though it was for an entirely different field, I went to a vocational school myself, and the education isn’t bad. Most of these schools aim to give you what you need to get out the door and get a job in that area. In any economy, having a marketable skill can’t be a negative — be it mechanics or cooking, at least you can do something other than sit on your ass.
What do you think? Is the vocational/tech school model still relevant to today’s workforce? Let us know in comments.
