Our so called 'free' education system produces 1000s of unemployable graduates every year who are nothing but a burden to the country and to our economy. Our education system needs to be inline with today's job market. We all know, the free system has failed and has been failing for years in delivering quality graduates because it is impossible to expect from a government of the third world country to provide quality education for free. It is even harder when the majority of us believe free education is their right when it is actually not.
