On the 4th March TES released an article stating that parents’ main concern is that their children should leave school with a flexible set of skills. The report went on to say parents think their children have a worse chance of getting a good job than previous generations, despite being better educated.

Research by education firm Pearson found that 50 per cent of parents thought their children would find it tougher to get a job than had been the case when they were themselves young.

However, almost as many (43 per cent) felt that their children were getting a better educational experience than their own.

Half of parents were concerned that their children were not being equipped with the right skills for future employment, and 46 per cent said that their child had a more difficult decision to make about post-16 education than they had themselves.
