On not going to university

With an increasing number of students heading to university each year, the value of a university degree is not the same as it once was. Even the word ‘value’ indicates that universities have become more like businesses rather than places of education. As the graduate market becomes more saturated, it is becoming more interesting to tell an interviewer why you chose not to go to university. In an interview with The Sunday Times earlier this year, Clarissa Farr, high mistress of St Paul’s Girls’ School in London (apparently the best-performing school in Britain), stated how it will soon be seen as ‘acceptable for bright students not to go to university’, indicating this ‘could be a more exciting and faster route to the top’.

    Universities used to be the gateway to higher knowledge and was worth the price of entry. Now all knowledge is available online for free. Exam centres will become the price point where you prove that you have processed the knowledge sufficiently.

    It’s interesting that another pillar of liberal indoctrination, along with television and print media, is probably about to crumble.

    Everything they touch turns to shit.
