…or so the lazy journalism at the Guardian would have us believe!
I find this quite staggering – to say it is World of Warcraft is the cause of the post-adolescent drop-out rate. Nothing to do with the fact certain teenagers and young adults, have a preposition to addiction – and to be frank, an addiction to an MMORPG as opposed to something more destructive, isn’t that bad as addictions go!
The ‘expert’ consulted has had five (yes FIVE) students come to him in the last academic year, with ‘various’ serious addictions – however, it seems only one of them was in fact a gamer!
I think the most likely cause of drop-outs over the next few years will be the downturn in the economy, and the lack of part-time jobs which students need to supplement the tiny loan/grant system.
