1.There is a lack of career guidance facilities and consequently child's particular inclination and passion for any particular field does not get discovered.
2. Even if child's interest is spotted, he or she is unable to pursue it because of lack of teaching and training facilities in the particular field.
3. Normally, parents/elders decide what the child will study and they want their children to be doctors, engineers, etc because these positions carry more respectability and acceptability in the society.
hardworking students of average intelligene will qualify any course that they are enroled into and will perform satisfactorily in their jobs. However, their performance will be nowhere near that of persons who came in the profession because of their particular inclination.
Libya has a relatively small population and plentiful resources. I am sure it would not be too difficult to provide career guidance and a wide spectrum of teaching and training facilities, especially in science, art and crafts as suggested by Zainab so that all children could exploit their full potential and excel in their field, which will be good for them and good for the country.
There is also a need to persuade the parents and elders to let the children choose their profession and not to regard certain professions and vocations as 'below the required level of respectability'.
