In Gh, the impression has been created dat it's only d illiterates n school drop outs that learn hand skilled job.. unfortunately it's only a few of d literates that have hand skilled job,wit d rest waiting to b employed wit a pen as their job tool..
This is a lesson to parents to encourage their children who r gud in creating little objects with their hands n mind to polish that talent through vocational/technical training
I have a tertiary education but I wish I learnt fitting work; it's very lucrative in Canada - GH man & gets netizens talking

That's why I feel pity for most of the parents who are wasting much to enroll their children in SHS... Because I know 90% of them will be unemployed/under-employed at the end.
