Are we creating a white underclass????

This is from the UK - wouldn't it be great if Stats Canada could report on stuff like this -- oops, I forget, they would love to see a white underclass...
White teenagers are less likely to go to university than school-leavers from other ethnic groups - even with the same A-level results, according to official figures.

The gap is widest among male teenagers from poor backgrounds, raising fresh fears that working class boys are becoming the education "underclass" in England.

According to a Government report, just over one-in-20 white boys from poor homes goes on to university.

This compares to 66 per cent of Indian girls and 65 per cent of young women from Chinese families.

An analysis published by the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills said the rise in the number of women going to university over the last 10 or 20 years "had made the performance of males look relatively dismal".

The report said many working class white boys dropped out of education at the earliest opportunity, aged 16.

There's another set of statistics coming out of the UK, too. I write about it on my blog. It's also about teenagers. They're having more abortions. Everyone is having more abortions. Would fetuses be considered an underclass, too? Guess not.

I wonder if there is something that government can to inform the white community that education is important.

Perhaps the problem comes from white culture which values the accumulation of goods through debt rather than actually advancement. Perhaps the government can do something to reform white culture.
