Good education more crucial to success than working hard, say Spaniards

SPANIARDS see a good education as far more crucial to success than working hard, according to a new survey.

The Pew Research Centre’s 2014 survey into global attitudes toward the future revealed that 71% of Spanish participants ranked a good education as the key to success.

While only 47% thought that working hard was important for success, almost equal with the 42% who believed it was all about knowing the right people.

And even though 51% believed outside forces determined success, 52% blamed the government’s economic policy for inequality.

Furthermore, seven in 10 believe that gap between rich and poor is a huge problem that must be dealt with urgently.
