This does not really surprise me aas I personally know some students who took a computor Course lasting three years and they have a problem dealing with a windows problem, they are unable to work and write with spreadsheets and as for the other seemingly easy tasks they struggle to achieve, by no means the norm I am sure but an indication that students who go to these so-called tech colleges learn almost bugger all.

Is Thailand really that different to Lao? My HIGH SCHOOL students are savvy in Excel, can create an acceptable relational database using Codd's laws, understand protocols, and can configure a basic network.
