Home » » Comparison between technical education and general education

Education is the backbone of a nation. Education enlightens a person. In this respect, both technical education and general education play significant roles in the development of the nation. General education usually makes a man highly educated. But this type of education often fails to establish a man in his life because it does not make a person specialised. As a result, a number of highly educated persons remain unemployed., They become the burden of the country and the nation. On the other hand, a man who has technical education, can somehow manage a job or may be self reliant. 

Ours is the age of survival for the fittest. General education may fulfil the demands of education but it cannot fulfil one’s basic needs. A country, like Bangladesh, needs devoted workers, which only technical education may provide. Surprisingly it is seen that one, completing his MBBS course, serves in a bank or in any commercial institution. Then where does the value of that degree remain? Conversely, technical education is job oriented. It ensures getting a job in the respective fields. 

Technical education should be compulsory for all. On the contrary, general education should be Only for the selected persons. In our socio-economic condition, technical education is inevitable. Clerks and officials are needed but some skilled workers are very important. We should bear in mind that there is no alternative to production and this production is possible on the part of the skilled persons. A skilled worker is preferable to a highly educated unemployed person. Both types of education are welcome so long as education and knowledge are concerned. But they should be distinguished if the question of reality and pragmatic value arises.
