Education Ministry fails to explain intake problems

MP SPEAKS I read with aghast and disappointment the press statement issued by the Higher Education section of the Ministry of Education (MOE) to refute the pointers I had made regarding this year’s intake of students into public institutes of higher learning (IPTA).

When MOE issued the statement on August 2, 2013, I was on a working trip to Beijing, China with my fellow party leaders. I have just arrived home today and therefore it is necessary for me to issue a response to correct the rebuttals by the MOE and to set the record straight.

Referring to the second paragraph of the press statement issued by the MOE that only 39 students with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 4.0 failed to receive any offers from IPTA, I hope that the MOE will not oversimplify the problem.
