    We have. You just are not aware. Maybe you should talk to your school board.

    Excuse me, are you an Admiral or a Teacher?

    In Soviet schools there was such a subject of teaching "military business"
    This was given for children from 14 to 17 years.
    Such an object in the Soviet school was taught by an old gagged-legged Colonel ...

    There are several vocational institutions here in Clarke County and they are very difficult to get into. One has to maintain an excellent grade point average to stay.

    Thank you, but your photo shows the so-called "perfect version"
    The Russians are very squeamish, so we use rags only on the rug, which we walk on our feet ..

    Even in the Soviet Army.
    Try to find in Google "Blanket for the Army of the USSR"
    You will see that this blanket has 2 strips ..
    Why are these 2 strips?

    Here they emphasize STEM courses that focuses on science, technology and mathematics. There is also a strong focus to influence women to pursue careers in those fields. Basically there is a strong push to move students into higher education. The reality here is the general concept you aren't going much of anywhere without a college education.

    Of course we still have men and women that can make a killing working heating, air conditioning, plumbing, and electrical, etc. (if we flooded the market with those people, then demand would be more satisfied and they wouldn't make as much money). As far as manufacturing/production/service is concerned, there is a general acceptance that those jobs are for people who cannot (or don't want to in some cases) do any better. In most cases, they still aren't going to get very high in production/service management without a college degree (even if their degree is in English Literature and has nothing to do with their job).

    Here most people want to go to college, whether or not they are ever going to use anything they learn in college. Here at the ages 16-18 they can choose to practice business, politics, sports in extra curricular activities or they can work (after school).

    Me too. I’d even stand behind making some vocational training mandatory in public school. Especially cooking a balanced meal. It’s not vocational per say but could be. Take two weeks and train kids how to properly cook a damn meal.

    I was an naval officer first, and then a teacher. My actual rank in the Navy was Lieutenant Commander and I served 23 years both active and reserve. I taught math and social studies for 21 years. Those two careers overlapped by 5 years.

    Where quilting used to be more of an domestic or community enterprise here, now you can go to places like Eureka Springs and buy handmade quilts for $6500 each. :21:

    I did not understand a thing, but I like your answer.

    Admiral of the United States, why are there two strips on Russian blankets?
