    I did an Bachelor of Arts. Why? As it offered the widest variety of course available. I focused on Industrial Relations and Political Science as my majors and they were and still are directly related to my work as I am a public servant. Fact is the humanities is often the field that looks at things like critical thinking, ethics etc, things many science, engineering and economic degrees hardly ever study. If you want a moral vacuum amongst uni graduates just concentrate on "STEM".

    Also leaving it up to governments to work out which "technology" courses are the right way to go? Yeah that's always worked in the past eh? :rolleyes:

    It’s a crying shame if anyone chooses to feel offended by my post, which I do agree, is politically incorrect.

    But then again that is what is so enjoyable about it.

    Offended, really? I don’t think you’ve actually comprehend what I wrote. Read it again.
    I’d love to know which part of my post leads you to believe that I am offended.

    There is an element of humour in the fact my last post was an exact duplication of my post #26 in this thread.

    I accept that some people may not find it that humorous if they are somewhat wound a little tight

    Let’s clarify a few things.
    1) I wasn’t offended, which you insinuated I was, and when asked you couldn’t back it up. You’ve given yourself a tad too much credit.
    2) I never said it was politically incorrect, so how you can agree with me on that point is laughable.
    3) I think your humour needs work if duplicating a post meets the mark.
    4) Someone who shows the lack of rationale & irony in the point you made, and doesn’t get your humour is “wound a little tight”?

    So what was the point of your post?

    Titans winger Anthony Don has been named the NRL's 2020 Academic Male of the Year with Warriors playmaker Kirra Dibb earning the Academic Female of the Year award as the NRL and RLPA announced their 2020 Academic Team of the Year.

    A total of 93 current NRL players have completed or are completing a university degree, while seven players are doing a Masters degree, through 32 different universities.

    A further 106 players are completing traditional trades while 610 VET qualifications have been achieved by all current players.

    "This year's Academic Team of the Year will be remembered as one of the most disciplined and determined," NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said.

    "Our squads have been in a biosecurity bubble all year but the commitment of these players to continue to further their studies during the pandemic is a remarkable achievement."

    NRL wellbeing & education manager Paul Heptonstall said players seeking education opportunities were more likely to thrive on the field as well as in future careers.

    "We have 84 percent of players currently engaged in career development," Heptonstall said.

    "We have long believed, and it is backed up by research, that players who further their education are more likely to succeed on the field.

    "It is also pleasing to see some of our most successful clubs off the field as some of the most engaged clubs with their off-field development and education."

    Good.

    Didn't the LNP give a lot of cash to the Donkeys when Abbott was in charge?
