Baccaleurate degrees versus technical-vocational / associate courses?

Are you wondering why in the Philippines many people choose to take up Baccaleurate degrees than technical-vocational courses? I belive if you finished a Diploma course you could have better advantage over the associate/ vocational courses. But if you will analyze the need of industry here in the Philippines, we needed more of the vocational courses. That is why there are mismatched of courses in our society. Some may finish diploma degrees but do not have adequate skills sometimes. That is why whether you take up B.S or associate/technical, it is up to the person to have his/her life successful.

Filipinos are known to be wise and practical, aside from being hospitable. In my point of view, Filipinos are taking Baccalaureate degrees because of the following reasons: some prefer to work and proceed studying in-dept abroad some are really aspiring to be a great name in their specialized field some are just practical that if they would take a baccalaureate,they could land a good job..but still can work on just-vocational jobs,,,unlike people taking vocational jobs they cant work on offices and can get high ranks, unless they proceed studying on higher education.. :)

you are right. we shouldn't under estimate those people who take technical or vocational courses because our economy calls for them more. when you enroll to tesda you would have classmates who are graduates of dentistry, nursing and other professional courses. they are degree holders but why do they have to take short courses? because they can't find jobs that fit their educational background and taking short courses offers them job. the problem is the mismatch of our graduates to the needs of our economy that is why there are many jobless people.
