A School With A Vocational Focus?

Where do such wacky ideas come from?  I mean, really, the thought of preparing students for actual jobs instead of pretending they're all going to college is just, well, uh...
The energy capital of the world soon might have a high school befitting its title.

Houston ISD Superintendent Terry Grier on Friday announced preliminary plans to develop a magnet high school for energy, petroleum and technology careers. Much like DeBakey High School for Health Professions, the small campus would help educate and train students for jobs in one of Houston’s most important industries.
Ah, now I know the correct tack to take:

They're preparing kids to make global warming worse! Dirty oil, why can't they make a school advocating solar and wind power?  I'll bet George Bush is involved....

OK, I'm done pretending to be a liberal for the day.  Thanks to reader MikeAT for the link.
