I don't think I know one person who's gone education has helped the, get a job. Not one. My richest mate didn't even get a degree. Anothe rone is doing realyl well and he's got two GCSEs (I kid you not).
Everyone I know who went through school / college / uni working hard now has a shit job which they could have got without a single exam pass anyway. Yet, some people I know left school at 15, learnt how to be a plumber or sparky and are now skilled and minted.
Education, it's all one big con really isn't it?
