Your child attends a school. Great! You are planning to send him/her to study at university or college. Perfect! But will it guarantee them a bright future? Unfortunately, the answer is not that simple and in most of cases the answer is NO. Schools and universities education in a form they exist today can not guarantee your child a job and a position in a society because the world is changing much faster than the education system.
