What can be done to eliminate unemployment in a poor country?
The elitist education system is the problem as it condemns the majority to unemployment. There are no adequate avenues to engage those who do not make the grades to proceed with education or training institutions. I have been toying with idea of compulsory national service for youth who have attained the age of 18 years before joining University or employment. That would delay their joining job market if they do not go for further studies or training for two years. The economy should also be growing at a fast enough rate to absorb those who terminate Education at various stages. The youth service would also be an expensive proposition. This is one problem. Are there successful models out there that can be replicated to address this problem?
