The democracy dividend – Bole ‘reforms’ scrapped

Education Minister Dr Mahendra Reddy has announced that external examinations will be re-introduced from Year 6 to Year 13. “We don’t want our teachers to prepare exam papers because all kinds of leakage are happening.” The process of scaling marks has also turned into a joke with students who failed science subjects being ‘scaled’ into passes. Exams were abolished by Bole without any consultation or thought about how the system would work. This is one of many examples of what we should be calling the “democracy dividend”.
