    Rakas, Qwertish, and TNP have each expressed a desire for tighter controls, and I'm guessing that they're not alone. At the very least it's an even split.
    Yeah, but the sneaky sneaky libertarians have maneuvered into all the departments which have a say on drugs policy :mwuaha:

    For science and maths there should be two streams: maths those who wish to undertake futher study in the sciences, and arithmetic for those who do not. Arithmetic gives you the essentials the 'things wot I will use'; maths then provides those such as yourself the training in the higher level elements.
    I think this is a very good idea and there is not enough emphasis on basic arithmetic skills which are essential in all walks of life (as you put it, probably better than I could ). Plus, it probably would have made some of the people I studied maths with more enthused (to some extent, perhaps) to as they'd have actually felt there was some kind of a point to it.

    I support this idea, but I wouldn't want people forced into either stream.

    To clarify: I am pro-January exams and pro-modular. What more would you expect from a student?

    Computer skills in general, though, need dramatically improving. What would the SoS make of prescribing computer skills lessons in primary school in the same quuantity as hand writing?

    That would be folly, they do plenty of computer work already.

    Since Krollo still has education, you may use this thread to question him.

    Could we not keep all government related questions in the Ask the Coalition thread? Otherwise you'll have threads on over ten departments.

    Sure.

    In that case it's probably best for this thread to be closed.
