Thinking outside the chimney

I had another epiphany last night. One of those moments where reality and common sense collide and produce an Idea. Here are three statements. See if you understand where I’m going with this.

There is a need for more people to be working in this country, to bolster the economy as more and more people live longer.

Students at school are increasingly being encouraged to pursue work-related learning routes of study, from an earlier age. These experience-rich qualifications will enable students to get jobs and employers to find staff who actually are able to do them. A lot of the work may have to be done in vocational settings.

Some industries which need growth include such tasks as reaching behind sinks, up chimneys and in other small spaces.

I am a teacher, so I know what I’m talking about. What if everyone left school at age six?

I’m just saying.
