THE GEOGRAPHY OF THE CANDIDATES FOR THE UNIVERSITIES IN GREECE
Keywords:Greece, geography, student preferences, tourism, education
In recent years in Greece, students especially in areas that are richer and in areas where there is a large increase in tourism seem to prefer mainly to work and not to study at a university. This means that the geography of education in Greece is changing significantly and also seems to affect the psychology and willingness of young students to continue their studies. In the coming years there will be a large disparity between those developed in tourism and other areas in terms of knowledge and education. This is a problem that will greatly change the map of education in the coming years and will radically change the mentality of people who will start families. The present study presents the problems in the regions of Greece through statistical analyzes with percentages and highlights the change in student behavior. The importance of percentages highlights a contemporary problem in education that will bring about significant changes in the culture and social behavior of people in the coming years. This is a phenomenon that has large dimensions and occurs in many parts of the world. This is a problem that we will have to solve in the coming years to at least be sure that knowledge will be passed on to future generations in a formal way and not empirically.
