Summary

Inspite of governments ever increasing investments in the improvements of the lives of youth, through education (non) programs, most have failed to reach their potential. They are not creative/innovative, very dependent, unemployed, lose jobs easily (no employability skills), drop out of school, and many cannot start and grow any small enterprises.
