NEETs An Overview of this Scoop.it

As researcher in eduacation, I  concerned that there is a growing number of youth wo find that education does not interest them and in many case education has failed them. I am equally concerned that money is being allocated for te samo-same-old lecture, workbook, class driven remediation tha makes some students feel more inadequte. This scoop it gathers data from all parts of the world. While NEETs may seem to be insensitive name calling it does not imply that all the burden falls on the young person it is a social issue where many services failed them.
