Ah! The big issue of degrees. Is it important to have one? Do people really need them? Why do some parents put such pressure on their children to earn a degree, or even two? Probably because at this point in time people are recruited on the basis of their degrees and academic history – to the detriment, sometimes, of the person they are or of their non-academic experience.
