Thanks, UW

UW researchers have discovered yet another depressing fact about modern life:

Millions of young people in India, particularly young men, are discovering that education, either in high school or college, doesn’t necessarily mean better lives. They cannot find jobs commensurate with their schooling, found Craig Jeffrey, a geography and international studies professor at the University of Washington; and Patricia and Roger Jeffery, sociologists at the University of Edinburgh. (The Jefferys are husband-and-wife but not related to Jeffrey.)

This frustration about jobs is leading to a growing class of desperate, possibly volatile young citizens, the researchers say. [uw news]

In other news, UW researchers say that if the bus is coming towards you, don’t get out of the way.
