There’s an ongoing reality gap involving University education;
Black and Asian teenagers are more likely to apply to university than white youngsters in England, according to the Ucas admissions service. The analysis of applications also shows big differences within the UK, with Northern Ireland youngsters the most likely to aspire to university.
Can’t wait for Government to prioritise the needs of white young people AND ensure there is positive discrimination in their favour.
and then this…
About half of young people now apply for university places – in England this rose from 36% to 44% between 2006 and 2010.
The Labour aspiration was for 50% of young people to go to University, and these figures show that they almost succeeded. But what has been achieved as a result?
We have many graduates with worthless degrees and mired in debt emerging from their University life who can look forward to either the most basic jobs in call centres of working filling supermarket shelves, or even years of unemployment. Furthermore, because the SUPPLY of graduates has increased the VALUE of graduates has naturally decreased. Basic economics but one that eludes the political engineers. In one sense, we are educating young people into worthlessness.
