When I was in my jr and sr years I went to this Vo-Tech School. Since it wasnt in our home school district we were bused about 25 miles to this school. The class days were about 3 periods long.
Comparing then and now the only 2 I remember still there are office education and nursing. But back then they also offered auto mechanics, welding, electronics, auto body, and agricultural education.
In looking at my local high schools they call it “Industrial technology” now but there is very little hands on anymore and the only one still offered is Woodworking. The others are drafting, computers, and areas related to medical fields.
I’d like to ask, did any one you all take vocational courses?
Do your local high schools still offer them?
Do you think they were wrong to drop them?
Do you see them returning?
