Education Matters! And Millennials are Educated.
While the recession exacerbated the challenges ahead of us, it also exposed the resilience of those who had attained high levels of education. We are well placed not just because many of us have advanced credentials, but also because of the methods by which we have learned. Computing and its applications are ubiquitous in our education system.
For the majority of individuals who access our post-secondary system the outcomes are tremendously positive. Canada is the most Educated Nation in the World Canada recently retained its ranking as the most educated nation in the world.
This comparative educational advantage has benefited us for years and will continue to do so, but other nations are hot on our heels. To maintain our advantages we will need to creatively approach the challenge of funding post-secondary and ensuring a fluid transition from secondary to tertiary education and then into the workforce.
