India's Vice President Hamid Ansari stressed the need of vocational education in the schools Friday and said it is important to change people's mindset, which attaches social stigma to it. Ansari was speaking at the 'International Conference on Skilling in Schools.' The vice president said the government knows the importance of skill development for the national agenda and that there is a need to mainstream skill formation in the education system. At present, there is only a low level of vocational education and training in India.
