HIGHER EDUCATION AND LOWER EMPLOYMENT

As we exchange holiday greetings with fellow academics we are more deeply aware that PhD was once a ‘Qualification’ but now seems to Qualify one for ‘no response to Job Applications at Tertiary Level’ and ‘no income from Centrelink’ and drives said “Doctors” into various wildernesses. Perhaps the term Permanent Head Damage is increasingly relevant.
While I am on the subject of Australia the Educating Country, we could consider the possibility of a toilet beside each Primary and Infant Classroom or is that to remain a ‘Luxury’. Within the same building would be a start. Then again- lets toughen them up little and send them alone across vast playgrounds in wet and wind and sun and sleet. It will prepare them for their Tertiary Education Experience. R.A.
