1.1 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
The researchers wish to investigate the employment problem in connection with the first time job seekers that graduated from the post secondary schools, between the years of 2009 to 2012 and the reaction of the parent in general towards (as seems to them) government crude policy on the freeze on employment. If one flashes back to those old good days about 1966 to early 1989, one would see that employment opportunity were available. So much so that those who had the opportunity and patiently underwent all the deals, it look to survive the primary and secondary education above all university education, were the cynosure and reference point of the people. They become the focus of their people, and much pride till the hearts of their parent whenever they are being discussed. In essence, there educated one just like the messiahs to their people in particular had their community in general. This is because the parent knew that these products of western education were viable and were also men of hope for better living standard. Everything is expected to be under their disposition; a good job, a car, high status and above all respectability.
The educated ones were seen as the beacons that would shine through the goony darkness that enshrine the fate of some peasant farmers in the society. Candidly, investment in education then was not regarded as a waste; rather it was seen as the biggest industry. Also it was being patronized by many who had the opportunity to do so. 2 The parent as well as the government at local, state and federal levels recognized this biggest industry, as a veritable tool for nation building as a tool for dissemination of knowledge to future generation. For this reason both the parent and government were ready to fund education for better growth. But alas this was the era of oil boom. But overtime around 1980-1982 things started to get out of control because of the poor economic position of the country, which is as a result of the dwindling income from oil, Algeria being a mono-cultural economy nation. This era saw the corrupt politicians through, who promised heaven on earth during their electioneering campaigns to provide all the gouaches of life when voted in to power. Even then, employment opportunities were available to certain extent, so much that some of these first time stage, the peasant farmers were still with every courage in sending their children to school. Coming to the tail end of 1983, the country witnessed the advent of military intervention with the hope to rescue the country’s poor economic situation. In order to resuscitate and revamp the economy of the country, retrenchment policy was undertaken. Also further employment of graduates from post secondary school and universities which was hitherto the case was banned. The fate of some parents was left doomed, confused and viewed western education as an end in itself and not a means to an end anymore. It is in the high of the above that the researchers intend to undertake their study, being the background of the problem.
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Many papers have been presented in seminars, symposiums and conferences about the issues of unemployment now lifting the country. The main focus of the researchers is to know the type of attitude parent has developed toward their children education with regards to present lack of employment opportunity in the state. The objectives among others are to give solutions as to whether there will be ways government will devices, so as to restructure educational system of this nation. So much so that graduate at all level will be self employed, without necessarily depending on the government to employed them and leaving the parents with different reaction towards education in view of employment. The researcher will find out the present notion of parents about western education as regard to unemployment. This research is also aimed at finding out if present unemployment has forced the parent to prefer sending their male sex to school to their female sex. In addition to this, the researchers will find out gap between the numbers of children the educated people send to school compared to those of illiterate parents. The researchers will also study the reactions of students towards western education, knowing quite alright that the possibility of being employed after their graduating is very low. This research will go further at seeking ways government will help the unemployment.
