Why are vocational programs so disdained.
When, and only when, upper school administrators
receive the same amount of honor for the number of vocational graduates as
they do for number of national merit scholars will this change. Many will
talk about the "accident liability" associated with vocational programs but
this argument is a smoke-screen. I live and teach in Texas where high
school football is god. I know of no football program that has been shut
down because of "high accident rates" and the associated liability.
