Graduate youth unemployment would not bring benefit to the society, Aung San Suu Kyi says

“Our country’s education has long been dysfunctional. Better education system must have better standards. It can fulfil the needs of the time. The most important thing is job creation. Such training courses are crucial for youth education and employment. I strongly believe that the increasing number of jobless youths would not bring a considerable benefit to the country. We have committed to offering more vocational courses that can help youths to have more employment opportunities,” said Aung San Suu Kyi.

The vocational training courses are said to be the pilot projects. A handful of countries equate the vocational courses with the university courses. Youths from the vocational courses can benefit the community like the graduated youths, she said.

The eastern countries value the university education. And the parents want their offspring to become graduated ones. The new generations themselves want to get the degree. There is no much difference between the universities and the vocational training schools. Even those graduates have a sense of accountability. We cannot compare such dignity. Having a sense of accountability is of great importance. A person must assume his or her reasonability. For that, I have been giving encouragements to the vocational training courses, she said.

The students would reach a particular level only when they have to pursue their education in a correct teaching manner. In that regard, teachers play a crucial role as well. But students will achieve success only when they themselves make strenuous efforts, thereby bringing the benefits to the country.

Daw Kin Kyi Foundation located in Magyikan village, Kawhmu Township of Yangon Region offers free hospitality courses for youth across the country.
