50% of young people go to University in Britain and there is only one certainty and that’s when they finish most will be in debt. With sky-high fee’s (and due to rise) and no job guarantee is it really worth it?
In 1963, just 5% of our brightest students went to university, in 2015 it’s 50%. Have we spawned a generation far brighter than the baby boomers? I don’t think so, in my opinion our children have fewer options available to them so is university delaying the inevitable. Gone are the local industries which were fed from school leavers at 16.
