The younger generation has always inspired disbelief and prophecies of doom among the oldies. It’s a Darwin thing, I suppose. So I anticipated some unpleasant surprises today when I saw a list of the ‘top ten degree courses’ in Olde Englande.
Of course I guessed that academic degrees in subjects which offer few career opportunities would not feature prominently in the list – the days of education for its own sake are long gone! But have a look at this list and maybe you’ll agree that the future seems to be in good hands. Some may pooh-pooh the value of social studies and sports science – but they are both very significant areas of employment and investment.
