Interesting take on education from one Tweet

If a degree holder is useless that is hardly the fault of the school that they attended, I'd say that the university had a lot to answer for.

Moreover the “lackadaisical” attitude is basically a Generation Y thing which both us Baby-Boomers *and* Generation X's can't/won't understand. A couple of years ago I had a Gen X'er describe how a Gen Y job applicant waltzed into the interview talking on his mobile phone, put his hand over the mouthpiece and asked the Gen X'er 'how long would the interview take?' Needless to say the Gen X'er replied that it was finished already. 'Attitude' is mostly a product of upbringing and guess who is responsible for most of that? No, not the parents, surely not! Besides why should youth automatically hold the same values and attitudes of us oldies? How quickly we forget.

... he makes the point perfectly
