What university dropout says of education in Italy

© beataignoranza.comIn Italy, the edu­ca­tion sys­tem is fal­ling down. Lite­rally. In about half of Ita­lian school buil­dings, inclu­ding uni­ver­si­ties, pieces of plas­ter are fal­ling off the cei­ling, water infil­trates into walls and floors are giving way, accor­ding to a, an orga­ni­za­tion of citi­zens. But that’s only the tip of the ice­berg, the appa­rent and most visible part of the Ita­lian edu­ca­tion problem.

The hid­den one is at least as much frigh­te­ning. Each year, one Ita­lian student out of five drops out of school. In 2011, left their stu­dies pre­ma­tu­rely. Three-fifths of those 758, 000 were boys. In Europe, where the ave­rage is 12.8%, only Spain and Por­tu­gal did worse than Italy.

Those num­bers get even higher when it comes to uni­ver­si­ties. Only 45% of stu­dents who enrol­led in uni­ver­si­ties are still there three years later to dis­cuss their the­sis, whe­reas they are 69% in ave­rage in the OECD. In a coun­try that has, by far, one of the lowest uni­ver­sity atten­dance in deve­lo­ped coun­tries, this means troubles.

“In Italy, the sys­tem of uni­ver­si­ties is ill, ” says Car­men Aina, a pro­fes­sor of eco­no­mics in Pie­monte Orientale-University who recently wrote a sur­vey on uni­ver­sity dro­pout. “It is not able to retain stu­dents throu­ghout their whole aca­de­mic career.”

Yet the situa­tion has slightly got bet­ter over the last ten years. “There is a real endea­vor in public schools, ” for­mer under-secretary in the Minis­try of Edu­ca­tion Marco Rossi-Doria. “But, ove­rall, it is still too slow and totally inadequate.”

Selec­tion hap­pens too late

Slow, inade­quate and blo­cked: so is the edu­ca­tion sys­tem in Italy. “Higher education-wise, you only have two options here: become a lawyer or do busi­ness, and basta, ” says Ric­cardo, 20, who deci­ded to move to France to study. “Besides, there are people gra­dua­ting from the best uni­ver­si­ties who don’t find a job because they don’t know anyone in the law or busi­ness areas. Once stu­dents rea­lize that, they feel attend uni­ver­sity is useless.”

I've learned that a teacher of mine -- a close family friend -- was a part of this batallion. He was drafted straight out of an internment camp, which is what is described in this article.
"I am not aware of the 442nd failing a single mission," said University of Utah historian John Reed. "Even great units can have a bad day. Yet the 442nd invariably achieved their objectives every time. The problem was that they did it with extremely high casualties."
Shigeru Matsukawa, 80, of Salt Lake City joined the 442nd -- with his mother's blessing -- shortly after his older brother, Isamie, was killed while fighting with the unit in Italy

My name is Jonathan. I am an American student studying in Italy at John Cabot University.I have been here in Rome for one year now. Studying in Italy gives me a first hand perspective on history and diplomacy while allowing me to fulfill in my monthly obligations to the military in Vicenza, Italy. I am a soldier in the Army Reserve. I also work at an American pub here in Rome and at the University whenever the opportunity arises.Studying in Italy also offers me a chance to closely examine one of my favorite European cultures. I adore Italian cuisine, art and coffee. Living abroad will give me an opportunity to sharpen my linguistic skills that are essential for any aspiring diplomat

1) Weather should be springlike, but March is unpredictable
2) I've stayed at a number - there's not a lot to choose. Try and see if any of those take your fancy.
3) There's a bus into town. Alternatively there's a train shuttle to the main railway station. Taxis are cheap - it's not far.
4) There are hundreds of restaurants - all good. The ones near the leaning tower cost twice as much.
5) The Tower, Cathedral, Baptistry, Campo Santo and the museum are all next to each other - and you can buy one ticket for the lot. The rest of town is interesting - just…
