More teens than ever leaving UK schools after 16

For the first time in a decade the number of students leaving school after the age of 16 has increased in the UK. Also, the number of teenagers that have no jobs, aren’t in school, and aren’t training for a job has risen by 8%. These figures are particularly worrying for a government that is worried about its economic future. A generation with a high percentage of untrained and unemployed workers is an issue.

The UK schools could perhaps be doing something more to convince the teens to stay and continue their education and they most certainly should be looking into something in that realm. The government has been criticized for failing to provide more jobs for the teenagers and to provide incentives to keep them in school. If something isn’t done the economy will suffer long term.
