Education's Information Asymmetry Ctd.

"In London there are 80,000 jobs in the technology industry; and yet last year, only 375 teenagers took an A level in computing."
- Debbie Forster, COO CDI Apps for Good
This is an absolute sham and highlights the absolute disconnect between education and the world of work. The process needs to be a symbiotic pipeline that makes the learning process as relevant to the real world and therefore the transition from education to the world of work as seamless as possible.

However the shockingly low number of teenagers studying computing at A level is symptomatic of Education's Information Asymmetry. I encourage you to read this link and leave any feedback, comments or thoughts you have.
