News, sport and opinion from the Guardian's UK edition. The decline of the Gap Year. When I say that I doubt that I will take a Gap Year, many adults are surprised.

The decline of the Gap Year

“Why”, they say, wide-eyed, “it’s such a wonderful growing experience / important rite of passage / chance to save the world.” Hm. All this may be so, but I am by no means alone in dismissing a year spent abroad. I can see many reasons for this.
