The budgets have been cut for electrical/welding//carpentry/automotive and funneled into college prep because that is what politicians can sell to the sheep.
BDShannon, the trades don't need high schools to train kids in any vocation. Just teach them to read a tape measure, be on time, and it's okay to work for a living. They pound "you got to go to college" so much it's looked as failure to be a working person.
