The next generation will have to pay for the growing number of asylum seekers

The Danish government has issued an order for Danish universities, colleges and high schools to cut 8.7 billions over the next couple of years.

Combined with the effort the governments over the last couple of years have done to reduce the number of students entering high schools Denmark could see a future in just a few decades where only the most wealthiest families can afford to give their children an education.

Recent research have shown that children of immigrants who entered Denmark only one generation ago have taken avantage of the easy access to higher educations. They pass high school and take up space in universities.

In Denmark social heritage normally matters a lot and it has not been normal that people starting at the bottom in the working class has fostered children who were able to pass high school and take university degrees. It has normally been something families had to earn the privilege to over many generations.

Taken into account that many asylum seekers target Denmark for their vacation while their homelands are a warzone our politicians fear that the children of the asylum seekers could take avantage of our education system and return with their degrees to their old homelands using them there while Denmark as a nation get stuck with the bill.

Our government had no option but to act.

Cutting 8.7 billions will result in chaos. It is not known how future generations will be impacted on the long run. Fortunately research have shown that ordinary workers with only 9 years of education can take some short courses and be able to work tasks which normally would take a employee with a long education cheaper because passing these courses don’t result in higher pay so hopefully some of the jobs which have been outsourced to the third world can be transferred back.
