Now that the Minister for Education’s post is vacant, could the post be given to one who has a background in education?
A person who has been through the mill.
A person who has actually taught schoolchildren
Someone who can listen and work with the school heads.
Someone who has education at heart.
And I recommend madam Rosy Akbar for the job because she was a vice-principal. She has a background as a schoolteacher.
I know my friend Dr Brij Lal is there but why I chose Ms Akbar is that we could do with a lady in the seat where men have always been chosen.
To the leaders, please, I speak for many who shall remain anonymous.
Please Mr Prime Minister, you can do it.
