Letter: In Brief

Click to follow
Sir: I am sick and tired of reading of the woes of being a student in Nineties Britain (letter, 18 November). Students do face hardships but must accept that their plight is usually only temporary.

Well-paid careers in this country are almost exclusively taken by graduates. Those unfortunates unable to succeed in our education system will soon replace students toiling away in supermarkets, pubs, etc for subsistence wages until they complete their degrees.

Students and their apologists must accept reality and realise that further education is a privilege and not the disadvantaged area of society they portray it as.
