Among all the good decisions taken by the government these days, there comes one that goes backwards. Today the Minister of Education announced that only 3 credits will be required to promote SC students to take HSC, compared to 4 credits. This is bad, because these students who did not get enough credits are wasting their time, THEY ARE NOT GOOD AT ACADEMICS – They are definitely good at doing something else. Vocational courses is the way for them. Allow more entries to courses by the MITD and similar bodies, so that they can receive some tertiary education straight away. This would also be inline with the Tertiary education minister’s vision.
Put it simply, the system is already making failures at CPE level… Someone who is not good at studies can be good at other things e.g. you can get these people into construction indusry, arts, tourism industry and more… Why force the course of action or delay them by getting them into HSC, when they should be seeking tertiary or on-the-job education. The Second Chance scheme is a helper in this but contrary to the decision of allowing only 3 credits to take HSC…
