‘….school autonomy is the way to go……as evidenced by top


performing schools around the world…..’

‘….we hope this time the Goverment is serious in doing good to the
education system (in view of how other countries are adapting education
to the needs of the economy and future challenges), and recognize that
Public much could be done to improve curriculum and teacher quality…..”

‘…this should not be another political experiment…..education must
