Here’s interesting media reports…
(1) (Canada). The teacher is right to give his students Zero mark for not submiting “required attainment” in their studies/courses. Required attainment is a condition with which a trainee/student must fulfill in order to be correctly assessed on his studies. Failing which, the student gets nothing (Zero) for not fulfiling the required attainment, as simple as that. The parents who support the teacher are right to do so.
(2) (Lion CITY, South East Asia). Productivity Myth in Lion CITY has been over-stretched. This author correctly pointed it out that, on the basis of solely using productivity as the only factor on lower-income groups wage increase might not be right. Good article.
