Education in future?

Education in future

In fact this picture is from 1998 but I’m of the opinion that it still shows what some/many students want.

However, I think if something like that became true then the education would suffer. Moreover, skilled people would decrease. This would have a bad effect on the labour market as the labour market needs skilled people to develop.
