You dont honestly think that the education system is there for the benefit of the student do you?
This type of thing happens every where. This is just a case of the bureaucrats being stupid enough to get caught !!

And are we to believe that some how you have a lot of first hand knowledge about the education system.
BTW I lived in your country for some time & was part of the higher education system while I was there.

I see that from another thread that it does not extend to high school maths or physics.

Same thing going on in Baltimore. Test papers with thousands of erasures on them and tests with the name of students that did not take the tests. Teachers, principals and administrators being investigated but nothing will happen to them because Baltimore is so corrupt.

It amazes me that the superintendents for the poor communities make six figures per year in addition to some of the assistants.

Do you think that paying a high salary guarantees more qualified personnel?

You will probably find that some of these so called education leaders have never left school in their life !!
starting from when they were 5 , a student right through until they completed teacher training, then onto education bureaucrat. A bit of real world life experience would have helped them. Its not all about passing tests !!
