SHOOT: 6/10 matriculants pass. That is a shocking statistic. It's almost 1/2. They keep lowering the standards and yet more and more people fail. It's because there is already a strong sense of entitlement - to jobs, to name changing, to whinging about the past. I've worked at a secondary school and the lack of discipline is chronic. I guess matrics expect to be able to pass based on wishful thinking, not actual work.
