Greek students not optimistic about their future

Greek pupils are pessimistic about their job prospects and many are considering moving abroad to escape high unemployment, a new survey shows.

According to a VPRC survey commissioned by the Greek-German school in Athens (Ellinogermaniki Agogi), 63 percent of senior high pupils said they are “pessimistic” about their job prospects and 37 percent said they want to work abroad.

Fifty-six percent said Greece is “probably not” near the end of the economic crisis, according to the survey which was conducted on a sample of 700 pupils.

Unemployment was the biggest concern among those questioned.
