It’s interesting to note that requirements for admissions to the University of Malta Junior College have been lowered just before the election and right on time with the Prime Minister’s announcement that he will abolish school homework. Previously, admission to the College required a Maths, Maltese and English certificate, however, this has been changed and now you only need one of them.
This is also the first time that 16-year olds will be voting in a general election.
All of the government’s policy is drawn and guided primarily with the exclusive interest of electoral purposes and rent-seeking. It would be interesting to ask the education professionals what do they think about all of these reforms being forced upon them by electoral press conferences.
