Sean Coughlan, education correspondent for BBC, authored a post highlighting differences in the percent of population who are college graduated, "London is most educated city in Europe." Eurostat data was used to display the differences across and within countries.
Coughlan argues that the differences in the percentages of graduates can be quite wide. He also notes that there is evidence the trend toward geographic concentration of graduates may be accelerating and the gaps may be growing.
OECD director of education, Andreas Scheicher is cited for commenting that the rise of "graduate cities" is the new normal and that arguments about whether there are too many graduates will soon appear very outdated. Coughlan also comments that attention needs to be paid to how local economies can sustain higher concentrations of graduates rather than narrowly focusing on the numbers of graduates institutions can produce.
