I have three daughters. The oldest one did a degree in economics at Birmingham University. She got her bachelor’s degree last year and is now doing some research on taxation laws in different countries. The second one is doing a course at Newcastle University. She’s doing history. She loves it, though she says she has to do far too many assignments. My youngest daughter is still at school. She’s doing her school-leaving exams in the summer. She’ll go to university next year if she gets good enough grades in her exams. She wants to do sociology and then get a social work qualification. My daughters are all getting a much better education than I ever had.
