This new concept to phase out Grade10 and 8 examinations will probably create more failures.
Why I say this is because those a lot of students will only free ride all the way to grade 12.
Will they even produce the best result as expected?
This is so unlike us from the past.
We made it on merit into Grade 9, then Grade 11 and tertiary level.
Hopefully the Education Minister reconsider his plans to change the current structure.
The current system is way better.
It produces the best and pushes out the average.
What we should be looking at is ways to improve the capacity of technical skills training centres.
This will cater for the growing number of average students being pushed out of the current system.
