Thread Name: BS: Choice of education
Subject: RE: BS: Choice of education
I asked you to tell me which degrees are the bullshit ones but you've evaded the question. Please also let me have your solution to the issue of teaching children whose first language is other than English. And, since time immemorial, universities and prospective employers have moaned and groaned about the standards of literacy and numeracy of children not only coming from "basic education" but also from sixth forms and even, in the case of some employers, from universities. 'Twas ever thus, and, once again, you appear to be harking back to a golden age when such complaints weren't made. If you have a point to make about what you perceive to be falling levels of literacy and numeracy, I suggest you resort to solid facts and figures, not to Daily Mail-tinged vague whinings from "it was never like this in my day" Mike Ashley types who haven't a clue what they're talking about.
