2.  In Australia  " universities are allowing students who have effectively failed Year 12 to become classroom teachers, in a move that has “alarmed” Federal Education Minister Simon Birmingham".

3.  American economist believes 80% of our education spend is spent poorly: https://www.acseduonline.com/blog-how-to-reduce-education-costs-192.aspx

For many competitors in education - both public & private institutions; it would appear providing an education service is more of a business and less to do with helping students learn

It's a sad state of affairs.
