Rise of the Technology Class

These conversations are between students from Ecuador, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Spain and the US who see technology serving a higher purpose: A counter-culture to their predecessors. This is evidence of a new type of generative class who apply technology to their creativity with art, music, science and involvement within the community. Their activity is transparent and active to our evolving civility. These multinational students are socially conscious storytellers. The Moderator of this conversation, Michael Davis is an Executive MBA graduate of Steinbeis University Germany, The Berlin School of Creative Leadership.

By Aruna, UK Rejects Students!

The number of would-be students who failed to get a university place was up 30% on last year in the UK.

Rise of the technology class

Statistics from the UK university admissions service, showed that 141,118 applicants did not find a place this year — up from 109,103 in 2008 — after a cap was placed on admissions. Why?

A further 175,000 students started university without loans or grants after technical problems at the Student Loans Company. (in the UK)

Rise of the Technology Class

Parents have demanded that the Government intervene.

“Ministers must now step in to ensure that the management of the loan situation are held to account for a fiasco that has left hundreds of thousands affected by late payments, lost documentation and a miserable start to their first term at university.” (sounds just like the US)

Classroom college

Carolyn Basham’s daughter is thousands of pounds in debt just weeks after starting university in London because of the delays to her loan payments. She applied before the deadline but has been unable to make contact with the loans company because of constantly busy phone lines.

British public education is really bad, and many, many students study in private schools because they are much better than public schools. British public education is one of the wost public education in Europe, worse than Spain (oh, yeah), where there´s not many difference between public and private schoos (yes, there´s one difference, public school is more difficoult than private school).
University is free, it not costs many money to go to the university. The state give loans or grants too.
The number of would-be students who failed to get a university place was up 5%-10% on last year in Spain because people who hasn´t got good marks make other studies (basic and top professional formation)

The Best education all over the world is on Sweden(the best), Norway and Finland.
