  1. I think technical education solves the problem of unemployment. Technically educated people will at last earn even their bread in honest and honourable way. Many people think that this education lowers their dignity. They prefer to be hungry lawyers than well fed mechanics.

  2. Hi,
    Now more than ever many nontraditional students are taking online classes and receiving vocational training to advance their careers.
    Thanks for reading,
