Troppi laureati in Cina

E’ il succo di un articolo a firma di Ian Johnson ( China Faces a Grad Glut After Boom at Colleges, Wall Street Journal 28.04.2009). Qui qualche highlight:

  • Up to one-third of last year’s 5.6 million university graduates are still looking for work, and this year will see another 6.1 million hit the labor market.
  • In 1998, 3.4 million Chinese attended university. By last year, the number was 21.5 million.
  • While experts say the country needs midlevel technical staff, many of these universities have tended to lure tuition-paying students with programs such as English, tourism, government, journalism and law. These are cheap — no large outlays for equipment are necessary — and appeal to Chinese sensibilities, which see education as a path to a government or other white-collar position, and not as training for a technical job.
