Is the only purpose of education to prepare people for the world of work? Most jobs now are menial such as assembly or operating simple machines. The lucky few with contacts still get good jobs in the City through the old boys network.
Education should try to educate people so they can set up their own businesses and free them from modern day slavery. Pupils should be taught how to grow their own food and life skills like cooking. Other skills like how to manage a bank account and how to select the best mortgage should be taught. Subjects like Art or history don’t lead to real jobs. If people want to learn about history they can do so in their own time.
