The big questions I think are: Should universities prepare students for jobs and are academics in touch with the future? In South Africa like many other parts of the world, students struggle to get to university. The education system has a throughput rate that is very low and much fewer students have university entrance passes. Of the few that get to university, many struggle to find jobs. I have no doubt that our government is making every attempt to help students. The tertiary education crisis is of course an international issue and my view is that we need to have this debate in each country. There is much for us to do regarding the development of students, universities and the job market. We are certainly living in different times. Thanks for this very interesting blog
