Review – Stuart Ritchie – “What’s The Point Of Going To School?”

The topic was what’s the point of going to school? This meant I was expecting a talk on the trade offs made with education over vocational training or work place experience providing better life outcomes. Especially in a time when the individual cost of higher education has never been higher and both graduates and employers seem to suggest that experience is currently just as valuable or even more so than education.

However the presentation was well done and covered some interesting topics of what are the most important contributing factors to good outcomes in education. Not drawing any conclusion where the evidence was not strong or was poorly collected, provided a source of information to allow the audience to evaluate the information themselves”
