No shame in vocational training

Our students are paying too much attention to going to universities, even though some could do better in technical colleges. In the past, while academically brighter students went to universities, society did not discriminate against those who went to technical colleges to get vocational training.


Nowadays students think they are no good if they do not go to university. This must be wrong, since different people start their careers in different points in their lives and in different ways. There is no one single 'correct' way, and every road leads to Rome.
