Are Degrees Still Worth It?

Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek says there has been an increase in the number of SPM leavers choosing not to pursue higher education. Among the factors that influenced their decision include financial problems and not wanting to be bound by education loans. We look into this and ask the opinions of an educationist and also explore the employers’ perspective into the issue.
