    Interesting and figures...Thanks for Sharing...:bowdown:

    Notice..the numbers of Afreekans gradutating with PhD's were beginning to decline in 2005....tho there was a SIGNIFICANT increase in the 17 yrs.

    I also wonder about the numbers of those enrolling compared to the grad rate. Like of that 1869 who graduated in or by 2004, how many had actually been actively enrolled.

    In some fields they make it more welcomed for you to have success and in other fields its set up to find less interest in. Teachers are stuck into having a curriculum. Other fields such as astronomy allow you to have much more free thinking.
