Nobody bothered, of course!
Still carrying on from my post yesterday, I had unearthed a little obscure news report in The Straits Times of 25 Nov 1960. I'm sure many of our politicians would feign ignorance by claiming to be too young (or not even born) to be aware of this news item but there you have it: as long as 53 years ago, educationalists were already warning us against lowering our educational standards. Today, the insidious federal government politicians have been exposed for their own self-serving mediocrity.
