Have you wondered whatever happened to technical and vocational courses in your local high school? Many of us can still remember classes in drafting, auto shop, woodshop, typewriting, cooking and sewing, among others. Much to the chagrin and displeasure of many, most of these classes have disappeared from schools. Except for cooking and a couple of others, most were found lacking, obsolete or very expensive to maintain due to the ever-changing nature of industry and technology.

Attending a four-year university and going on to become a lawyer, a doctor or a stockbroker are noble goals for any student. But they are not the answer -- nor should they be -- for everyone. That is why it is good to see what seems to be a renewed emphasis on vocational education in California, and especially Glendale. Local school officials are not wasting time in trying to take advantage of $20 million in Department of Education funding to bolster vocational and educational programs.

Gary Moskowitz Anita Quinonez Gabrielian believes in education.

Most Christmas seasons since I was a child, I've sat down to watch “Miracle on 34th Street,” one of my all-time favorite movies. To me, it's a story about people doing the “right” things for the “wrong” reasons: acts of generosity or kindness undertaken for profit or personal benefit. For example, the human resources director of Macy's (played by Maureen O'Hara) hires the kindly Kris Kringle (Edmund Gwynn) - without looking closely at his job application - to replace the Santa who's falling-down drunk on the Thanksgiving Day Parade float.

DOWNTOWN -- Councilman Frank Quintero officially announced Wednesday that he will seek the legislative seat of Glendale Assembly Majority Leader Dario Frommer, who is leaving his post to run for state controller. Quintero, a Tampa, Fla., native and two-term Glendale councilman and former city mayor, has long been rumored to be making a run for the seat. He said he has raised nearly $207,000 in campaign funds since September for his bid to represent the 43rd Assembly District, which includes Glendale, Burbank and the Los Angeles communities of North Hollywood, Silverlake, Los Feliz, Griffith Park, Toluca Lake, Atwater Village and Valley Glen.

GLENDALE — Cooperating with neighboring school districts and supporting certain legislation are ways high schools can improve career technical education, said officials from five school districts Tuesday. More than 20 administrators and board members from Glendale, Burbank, La Cañada, Pasadena and South Pasadena unified school districts gathered Tuesday at Glendale High School to discuss career technical education — formerly known as vocational education — and how it could better prepare students for the workforce.

My colleague Brian Crosby has written a very interesting book titled “Smart Kids, Bad Schools.” He was kind enough to give me a copy, and while I do not agree with all the points in the book, I found myself more often nodding in absolute, 100%, yes-that’s-how-it-is agreement. I’d like to put forward some of his most salient — and some would add, controversial — points because they go to the heart of how education is presently dispensed in this country.
