More Skills for Life

On the subject of vocational courses like Woodshop, Metalshop, or Auto Repair--maybe a more general "fix-it" course would've been better. Like "This Old House" in a semester. You'd tackle:

  • Drywall
  • Framing
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Flooring
  • Painting
  • yadda yadda yadda...

Wouldn't such a course prepare vocationally-minded students better for their future trade, while preparing the more domestically-minded how to fix up their house 20 years hence?
