2. What would you change about this program?
Text Response
More hands-on learning, with less classroom learning. Half of the classroom learning was
useless, meant to appease business interests and not further education or career readiness.
The notable exceptions were math and sanitation, classes that directly related to what I will do
in a job.

29. CONCLUSION - Please use this space to share any other
feedback, comments, or suggestions about your experience
at Western Technical College.
Text Response
Take advice from businessmen and women with a grain of salt. Enhance classes that stress
critical thinking and job-related skills. Make 75 percent of each program hands-on, job-related
skills training, with 25 percent for math and communication skills. And, most importantly, give
the instructors a raise -- they deserve it.
