How will Brexit affect the Education sector?
After months of campaigning, ‚Äòscare mongering‚Äô and speculation, the news that we have all been waiting for has finally arrived. The nation has voted and we are now set to leave the EU‚Ä¶ or so we thought!
You cannot escape the news of the referendum on this unusually sunny Friday morning whether it be on TV, internet or in a tabloid. Mr. Cameron, always dignified in defeat has handed in his resignation, leaving the ‚Äòsteering of the ship (our nation) to another captain!!‚Äô Nigel Farage is on his fourth or fifth public speak to tell the nation what a fantastic job they have done and how better Britain will be now‚Ä¶ this is the same Nigel Farage that doesn‚Äôt have a seat in British parliament. The Guardian is against him, the telegraph is ‚Äòfor‚Äô him and the independent ever inquisitive.
And as for Mr. Johnson? He left his home early this morning to the chorus of Boos from dissatisfied remain in the EU followers‚Ä¶And all of this before I have even got onto the Scottish and independence!!!
Conflicting views are constant‚Ä¶ will the pound be strong? Will we hit recession? Will the housing prices fall? Will the cost of travel go up? What will happen to the working economy?
It could be as long as two years before anything is finalised with pending agreements and some MPs are saying make changes now, whilst others are saying take time and plan carefully. It‚Äôs true the nation is divided, with MPs from the same parties also being divided on opinion.
But as this is a blog for teachers, let‚Äôs see how the Brexit would affect the Education sector:
There is no real evidence that the Brexit will have any implications on primary education as such, or secondary for that matter, however, there does seem to be lots of discussions on higher education and possible side effects as a result of the vote leave. It could just be hearsay or there could be elements of truth within what is being said. The proof with be in the pudding come the future.
