Bulgarian Youths Study with Reluctance
Just 42% of Bulgarians aged 19-24 are interested in continuing and finishing their studies, according to official national statistics revealed Saturday.
Bulgaria's National Statistical Institute revealed that less than half of Bulgaria's college student aged population are really interested in their studies.
According to Eurostat data released earlier, some 14% of Bulgarians in that age group (19-24) have prematurely left their studies.
The National Statistical Institute further revealed that 85.9% of Bulgarians in the age group 15-18 are being trained in the education system.
For the age group 11-14 that percentage is 96.9%, while for 7-10 - 97%. Education in Bulgaria is compulsory up to the 8th grade.
According to data by the National Statistical Institute, in 2010, 781,000 young Bulgarians went to high school, and 280,000 - to colleges and universities.

The readers should know that most master degrees are "given away" to students who have never seen a classroom. They have to study "from distance", because the poverty in the country obliges them to find a job while doing their master.
I've met people with a genuine master degree in International Management from the Sofia University, who didn't have the level even to work as a shop attendant.
The country should stop this fake system and provide the financial means to it's students and professors in order to come a real education system.
