Strongly Disagree with Prosser
If I read Prosser's theory prior to becoming a teacher, I would probably agree with the theorum. However, after experiencing teaching students who first had no interest in graphic design then suddenly obtain a skill with interest proves this theory wrong. Not every student knows what they want out of life and vocational skills can help give direction. I have some students now telling me of their interest of pursuing a career in graphic design, whereas months ago they had no clue of any desired major. Students need the opportunity of experimenting and getting involved in hands-on projects. Technical classes are clearly the pathway to help give students the option of exploring a new career and thus gain a skill for life.
