University – The Great Divider?

If we want to have excellent vocational training and apprenticeships, we need some leaders who chose the non-university route. Or at least know well some people who did.

Unfortunately most of our political leaders have taken the uni-route. And so will most of their other halves …

It turns out that men who go to university are 4 times more likely to marry another graduate than a non-grad. For women, it’s five times.*

University is sometimes described as the great mixer. A space where you meet people from other parts of the country, different backgrounds and income brackets.

Unfortunately its the great divider as well.
