Vocational Education/General Education: A False Dichotomy.
Hager, Paul
Studies in Continuing Education, v12 n1 p13-23 1990
The arguments against the well-entrenched dichotomy between vocational education and general education are economic, technological, and educational. First, "nonvocational" general education is also preparation for work and can contribute to economic growth. Second, technological changes in the workforce are making specific skill training obsolete. Third, academic and vocational skills are better developed when taught in an integrated fashion. (SK)
