In some countries, secondary schools aim to provide a general education across a range of subjects. In others children focus on a narrow range of subjects related to a particular career. For today’s world which system is appropriate?

Intro: Both systems have their own merits. The answer depends on the students’ interests and the goals of their studies.
Paragraph 1: Advantages of a broad range of subjects
-          Well rounded education
-          Students can find out what their interests really are as they will be exposed to a variety of fields of study
Ideal for those students who have many interests.
Who don’t know what their real interests are
They will pursue education for education sake and not just learn a trade
-          When they try to find out job after graduation, their versatility will allow them to apply for a wider range of jobs
Paragraph 2: Advantages of narrow range
-          Easy to find a job in their specific field of study. Naturally, companies will be more interested in job applicants who have superior knowledge and so can make better contributions
-          Allows students to focus on their interest and the subject relevant to them. A physics or chemistry student may feel out of place if he has to study ancient poetry or western literature
-          Less burden and so more time for hobbies
Conclusion: both systems have their own merits. So it depends on students choice and need of the country.
