Mickey Mouse B Sc.

One of this blog’s favourite hobby horses is the state of the education system. Schools are chaotic, qualifications are ludicrously easy to get, bogus statistics are presented in a futile attempt to convince us kids are getting smarter every year when anyone in business or public service knoiws the secondary school system is turning out illiterates and the “Street corner” Universities that are popping up everywhere are a joke, their only funcrion being to keep school – leavers off the unemployment figures for another three years.
But we keep hearing the system is functioning superbly.
On Trevor McDonald’s programme this week we were given several glimpses of the truth. The best was the casse of an investigative reporter applying for a University case in the name of Michael Mouse from Ladnneydis and citing a fictional school career and bogus qualifications.
He was accepted.
Q.E.D.
