Will building more universities help?

Way to help for Job prospect:

Improve Educational System and Set up Internship Programs

I was skeptical to what the educational official claiming to avoid social problems resulting from youth unemployment was to open more private universities (Cambodia Daily, Friday Sep 07 2007, “Recent Graduates Find Job Prospects Are Bleak”). It means that we only focus on physical infrastructure rather than systems that help improving the students’ ability and morality. Even though we have million universities, it would not help to rectify the social problems and reduce unemployment rate if the systems of ignorance and poor quality of education still exists within the universities. The system of teacher-centered is still practiced and there is no mechanism to help envision these students. Most of graduated students even do not know what their specialization is, job market, and their future plan.

Setting up Internship program in university curriculum will help students to experience social works. The Education Department should attempt to cooperate with all universities to improve educational system and provide sufficient vocational training through internship program, so that students are capable to work effectively and efficiently after their completion. Ultimately, the end result is attributing to reduce unemployment and bring economic and social development.
