Me too, Chick.  I think this drive for graduate education for all is fundamentally flawed.  Not everyone is capable of benefiting from a degree.  Many of those who are will end up doing jobs unrelated to it.  Many of those who take on decades of debt to go to university/college are pursuing the "university experience" (ie a party lifestyle) rather than an education. 

And in the meantime, all the trades that used to offer valuable apprenticeships that equipped their trainees with skills they knew they would use, either as employed or self-employed professionals, struggle to find suitable candidates. 

It's ridiculous.  Nobody benefits - except the universities who charge extortionate fees for a few hours' education every week.

Can we all get real - look at what's needed, look at who needs what qualifications, and look at young people's futures beyond Freshers Week?!

Out now from Richard Farren Barber and Crystal Lake Publishing:

After twenty years in the ground, the dead briefly rise. At his father’s grave, this is Dave’s last opportunity to discover why a man would abandon his wife and young son. Against the protests of his mother and his girlfriend, Dave is determined to learn what happened all those years ago. Sometimes you have to risk everything, but the dead don’t give up their secrets so easily.
Twenty Years Dead is a novella of quiet horror for fans of Paul Tremblay and Thomas Olde Heuvelt, which explores families and their secrets.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “Truly ghoulish with a plot that is hauntingly unearthed. The way this story is revealed was incredible. Totally engaging and it kept me thinking about what I would do in David’s situation. It was unique, and it had me on the edge of my seat with curiosity.”—Paul Preston

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “Richard Farren Barber’s Twenty Years Dead comes with the very highest of recommendation, turning a great idea into a very readable, funny and chilling page-turner.”—Ginger Nuts of Horror
