Vocational education is not a separate discipline within education, but it is a basic objective of all education and must b e a basic element of each person's education. The common objective should be a successful life in which employment has a crucial role.
It is the responsibility of the school and of the instructor to provide the student with the high quality vocational education that will enable that student to have a successful life by securing a good initial job adapting himself to that vocation.
What yardstick should one invoke to determine if the objective of a successful life with a good initial job has been met by vocational education? Is mere employment a substantial criterion to use, or must employment be in a field related to the training received?
