Education system – letter of the week ending 12/03-18/03

I THINK it is time we upgraded our education system with technology to match what is available in the workforce.

I sat for an exam recently and as it is, I had to write the answers with a pen.

My fingers are so used to typing now that writing with a pen was more difficult than the exam itself.

Moreover, some calculations were required and I really didn’t appreciate having to use a calculator when MS Excel is always at my disposal at work.

Let’s fix this mismatch between our educations system and the workplace requirements.
