Vocational Education: A Roadmap to National Development
Abstract: Education is a basic human right and considered by many as a key tool for national development. However, this tenet has been challenged by several economists, especially Pritchett (1996). His empirical analysis suggests that many countries, whilst having a large educated population, remain unable to make significant progress. It is also claimed that third world development is sluggish. These findings generate the question while education increases globally, what exactly is it that hinders a countrys progression There are no short answers, but a major area of concern is the type and quality of education available. Scholars argue that countries need a welldiversified education system in order to gain sustainable development through education. This paper explores the situation for Punjab for its development by providing technical and vocational education
