Will the government be able to slaughter the boarding schools golden goose?

A lot of teenagers are using the 10th form at a boarding school. Boarding schools called “Efterskole” has been used as a kind of timeout by many teenagers who had not decided which path in life they want to take.

But the Danish Industry does not like it. It delays their path toward a productive adult life.

Now the Danish government wants to move the 10th form to schools where the teenager can learn craftmanship. Too many attend the high schools targeted towards universities and university colleges when it is known that a lot of them would not be attend to finish them because universities have been shown to function only for children of families who have academic degrees in the previous generations.

Children from working class families function better working with craftmanship all research shows. The social heritage does matter. People will always be affected by it and it does not work trying to alter this. People are not born equal in Denmark and while you can set up a system with student grants, student grants are not all. 40 years of work in the field trying to make the social heritage matter less, has not worked.

Immigrants and children from working class families needs to learn to settle with things in life they can achieve.

So the public schools housing the 10’th form will move to schools with craftmanship but what about the boarding schools? Should they be allowed to operate as counter productive against the goal of the Danish Industry?

Something needs to be done because otherwise people will say that you can buy a timeout for your child if you have the money and you have to take the path life have put in place for you if you do not have the money.
