Should young people stay in education until 18?

As of the final quarter of 2010, 938,000 16- to 24-year-olds were classified as Neet, (not in education, employment or training)

Keeping young people in education will tackle this unemployment problem by making it easier for youth to get jobs. With higher qualifications such as A levels employers will want to hire people with better qualifications. Also many young people find that they cannot afford to go to college without EMA. Child trust funds and the future job fund schemes are being abolished while tuition fees are being tripled. If all young people stay in compulsory education until 18 then everyone can have education, not just the rich.

There are many other reasons why young people should stay in school
It further expands the next generation’s knowledge
Stops violence and poverty
Makes them better citizens because of humanities subjects (such as citizenship and sociology)
Helps young people develop better skills
Young people are taught about dedication and hard work to attain A levels
Makes less people part of neet as 17 and 18 year olds will be in education

Yes, I think that staying in education until they are 18 years old would be good for them. Most are not mature enough at 16 to do much or know where they want to go in life and it will give better qualifications and hopefully help socail issues.
