Yesterday the leader of the opposition raised talarm about the proposed criteria for admissions to schools and accused the minister of trying to hide behind the courts without carrying out his manadated responsibility of drafting an admission policy.
Right on Ranil. Keep the pressure on but please don’t make this a political football. I have seen first hand your legislative skills and your commitment to education in, for example, the Tertiary and Vocational Education Commission Act and the accompanying National apprentice and Industiral Training Act.
Please stay away from the streets. Raise your voice in parliament and give these simpletons in government some real options to work with. You may or may not become the next president, but you should certainly be remembered for what you have and can do for education.
