Rodrigo Vela Weber Posted about 3 years ago Higher or vocational education? Higher education for masses or for the elite? I have lived many years in a developing country and in Germany, And believe me, you don't want to separate the students at early ages, there are many cases where the most successful students in college or on their jobs where really lazy at school. That's something that I think it's hurting a lot Germany. I think the problem is somewhere else. We live on a globalized world, now you don't compete with your peer on your city but with your peers around the world. That's why it's so hard to find a job. The other huge factor is the mismatch between the demand of jobs and offer of professionals. Maybe people should start thinking about that before they choose what to study. Maybe universities and Governments should advertise where the demand is to the young people. I don't know what could resolve the unemployment problem or the mismatch of the professionals market, but I know less education in any sense would be terrible.
