We are all extremely concerned about education and schools because in our society, education is the bases for future success. Well, that was what we were taught anyway. However, many of my friends with degrees are either out of work or they are earning a living doing something that has nothing to do with what they had been training for during years and years. Some have even had to leave the country in order to find a job with a decent salary and a certain degree of work stability,which is an astonishing fact when one ponders on issues such as the amount of money involved in receiving higher education that is wasted if a country cannot provide suitable posts for such highly qualified people.
And then we have other problems as well. These ones have much more to do with students and teachers and involve a wide complexity within: curriculum, school schedules, budgets, dropouts, disruptive behaviour, teacher burnout and a very, very long etc.
Well, School and Education is one of the topics for almost all levels of the EOI, so here you have a speaking activity to make you ponder on some of the facts that affect this highly complex world.
