La boume, "Still we are here, competing for the jobs". This is my point. Comprehensive or grammar, university or college, straight A's or a few B's, it's still damn tough to get a job let alones the job that you think that you want. And how many people can honestly, honestly say that they are in their current position obtained as a result of their qualifications because they adore their job and leave most days after twelve hours of intense work with a smile on their face and a skip in their step?
I suppose the point that I am trying to put up for discussion is whether the whole qualification, do well, get a great job with a big employer in order to afford the gizmos that the advertising moguls decide that you need lifestyle is really the way to a happy life where you do actually do 'well'.
Imagine if their was a school that taught kids to think for themselves, to think outside of the box, to be different, to have faith in their idea and dreams, that there are some very viable and Rewarding alternatives to the qualification and corporate career life.
Mind you, it would probably need to be us parents that attend that particular school rather than our kids
