I was amazed from this conversation by how relevant it is to so many of the topics we have and will talk about. Although I think this is an interesting beginning to our conversation on Wednesday and I posted this anecdote in order to start thinking about finances within universities, I would like to focus on his comment of humanity students as being snooty. How could we have had that whole discussion without even considering how a student at a vocational school might perceive us and our education? This insight from a vocational student towards liberal arts students completely opened my eyes to a new part of the discussion I believe we completely avoided. Although we cannot fill in the voices of vocational students, how can we discuss vocational vs liberal arts without discussing “the other?” Ignoring vocational voices within our argument perpetuates the system of liberal arts students being elite, and while I understand this is a true classification, I believe it minimizes the opinions and views of vocational students as obsolete and unworthy. Sorry for how anecdotal this all was, but please let me know what your thoughts on this are!
