One could never be surprised by what Egyptian generations can do, they can distinguish between a highly educated and well-educated person and that’s why you will notice that Millennials are more educated than Gen Xers, but Gen Xers have further quality in education. As a result of what happened at the beginning of the 80s, graduating from university didn’t mean that you had a good education. It’s a simple equation that depends on balancing quality and quantity at the same time and this may give you a hint for what the upcoming question might be.
why most of the Millennials are fans of career change?
In the middle of the 20th century, Egypt was a popular destination for young people seeking an education. Students traveled from dozens of neighboring and Muslim-majority countries to pursue a high-quality education at Cairo University or al-Azhar University, This picture has, however, changed completely since the 1980s.
A growing population and little reform in the education system caused it to fall into disarray that led to severely overcrowded and underfunded schools and universities, which have long produced graduates unequipped for the demands of the modern labor market.
Bits and Pieces of Millennials’ Education
Starting with the sunrise when their ears heard their parents’ tweets, wearing their school uniforms, waiting for their sandwich bags to get ready, and might be listening to the radio to kill some time, then end up by carrying their backpacks that keep their gravity centered and ensuring they won’t fly with their imagination. We are not going to discuss the rest of what was happening through the educational phase because it will be pointless, but you can watch “3 Idiots” instead. Nevertheless, you can’t deny the impact of education on most
Millennials and the mirroring mode
The truth is, that the open doors policy didn’t contribute to reform our curriculum and education policy as they claimed, it just made it worse because nothing has been changed since 1960. Instead of the increase in demand for public education which, led to doors opening to private education businesses.
It’s next to nothing to mention how much the education factor influenced the Millennials mentalities, it was just trying to make a typical generation of the Gen. Xers, and somehow it did work, especially with the cooperation of the Mubarak’s freezer policy that helped establish a sense of carelessness supported by the concept of “praise to God” or “Alḥamdulillāh”
