Boggart Blog has said it before and we’ll say it again. Education is overrated. How much do we poor taxpayers stump up to put little no marks through higher education only for them to make a career of claiming benefits> (Mind you, you need a PhD to hay your way through the claim forms these days.)
Well now it is official, higher education is a waste of time. A graduate has no more chance of getting a job than someone leaving the local chav academy with nothing more than an ASBO to their name.
Figures released today from the Office for National Statistics (ONS will once more raise questions over the value of higher education, and whether the education policy over the past 25 years based on dumbing down should be scrapped. The ONS reports that almost 26 per cent of 16-year-olds who left school with only a GCSE qualification are unemployed.
At the same time, almost 25 per cent of all 21-year-olds who left university with a degree are unemployed.
The problem is compounded by the fact that many of those unemployed graduates have had expectation raised atrificially by Education Dept propaganda that not only are they too dim to retrain as plumbers, sparks and mechanics, they are too pompous to take a vocational course in Macology and get jobs as burger flippers.
