4.27 Vocational higher secondary education on with 2.04 crore SONTR occupies 19th position. In Kerala vocational higher secondary education is a total failure from the students’ point of view. Those who enroll in the VHSE, after finishing the course, pursue degree in Arts and Science colleges as the former does not equip them for a job. Hence, VHSE may be restructured as in the Central Government pattern where enrolment is in 9th standard and the course is continued till M.Phil. Only if such vertical progression possibilities exist, VHSE courses would serve the purpose. The Committee recommends either to restructure or to do away with VHSE.

be merged with higher secondary. .[Para 4.27]
