Review stance on D7, E8 grades - Government direct

Yet again our politicians are formulating policies tailored to meet the sentiments of the populace, even against their own considered rational beliefs.

For Christ sake, the mathematics at the SSCE is just basic. And students are required to get credit not to excell in it.

The argument that one does not need to get credit in some critical subjects to move up the ladder is hogwash.

Basic is basic. Is this kind of thinking not what set us on the slippery road of sub-standard education? Now we have SHS students that can't construct one simple sentence on their own.
