Lichfield residents top the county in education survey

mortarboardA new survey has shown that residents of the Lichfield Parliamentary constituency are the most highly educated in Staffordshire.

The survey, published by the University and College Union (UCU), looked at the percentage of residents with a university degree or NVQ4 or better.

Lichfield MP Michael Fabricant said the results showed that the city was continuing its intellectual journey. He explained:

“The city of Samuel Johnson continues to set the intellectual tone of the nation – as one can hear every day in the conversation in our coffee houses and local pubs. But this report does illustrate huge variations throughout the country and I recognise that Lichfield has many financially advantaged residents with high aspirations for themselves and their children.”
