How would you explain ‘technical’ and ‘professional’ in the context? The administrator told Mother it was in the boy’s interest that he should attend a different school next year. There were choices—technical, professional—but his advice was the Preparatoria. He lectured Mother using many conjugations of the verb “to prepare.” Preparation for Preparatoria. But Mother prepares for nothing. She informed him it was none of his business, but her son was going to the United States to live with his father, and she was certain the schools there were of higher caliber. How would you explain ‘technical’ and ‘professional’ in ‘There were choices—technical, professional—…’? Thanks!

This is how we undestand this in South America: Thecnical education : Academic and vocational preparation of students for jobs involving applied science and modern technology. They go to thecnical schools or institutes. They don´t get university´s degrees. Professional education: A professional is a member of a profession. The term also describes the standards of education and training that prepare members of the profession with the particular knowledge and skills necessary to perform the role of that profession. University degree. (Doctors,lawyers,veterinarians)
