Yes, technical schools need to be an option for high schoolers. Kids drop out of high school because they are not book learners. School becomes boring for them .
They need to work with their hands, and currently there are no options. Of course they will go for the computer, because it's the most interesting thing in the room.
Bring back the shop classes and allow these kids to create and be successful in something. When they can't be successful at book learning, they become frustrated and drop out.
We are having to import skilled and technical worker because we aren't training enough of them in this country. Kids nowadays don't know how to do anything! We need to teach them how to be handy. And most of all, we need to teach them how to get a job.
