My daughter, a rude mechanical

MY daughter went away to university - that is, a former technical college, re-classified - three years ago, with an advanced GNVQ, bright, smart, hardworking, well-mannered, and uneducated, in the true sense of the word. She has just returned, scruffy, untidy, lazy, rude, uncaring, unfit, and still uneducated.

Is this an indictment on her, or the state education system, or both? And, of course, we must not forget the pound;10,000 student loan debt.
