"Pointless GCSEs should be scrapped"

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Do you agree that GCSE's should be phased out?

IT should be compulsory at every level of education these days.

I also believe the basic processes of business should too. The amount of dimwits who don't understand what things like an invoice, purchase order, credit note etc are, is frankly embarrassing. I believe having a basic understanding of this stuff will allow for more people to start their own business.

Financial educations should be key too, knowing about life after school. Nobody teaches you this, or the ramifications of not being sensible with income when young.

Thing is in the future humans won’t be needed for many jobs! So that’s going to be a major societal issue
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Universal basic income seems to be a natural evolution in society. Allowing for humans to monetise things they actually enjoy doing, leaving us as humans actually feeling fulfilled and a sense of purpose.

Of course, the corporations will push against this where possible. There will become a breaking point when there aren't enough jobs to go round.

Isn’t that something parents should be doing?

Yeah, like all these students doing Media Studies just to get a cheap degree ... and don't get me started on Sociology, the study of the bleeding obvious. It used to be called Flower Arranging a decade or 2 back.

They do seem outdated. Most of the skills actually required to function in the real world are either not included at all or kicked to the edge/not respected.

Plus many kids just don't learn or succeed that way, they can be highly intelligent yet completely stifled by education.

Depends on whether they have that knowledge.

IMO, it's not fair on those who aren't brought up in that type of household to be limited by this sort of information.
