Dear Yew- I am sorry to hear that any subject is dropped from the curriculum. Since this was nationwide, it would have been a Ministerial or Governmental decision I guess; those in power are given to enthusiastic and irresposible "restructurings"- but would there also have been a politico-religious element here perhaps? Maybe the bosses realised that much Eng Lit was "improper" if there is an agenda of puritanism- it happened here too! I am guessing completely; I'm sort of obsessive! I am super sensitive to any whiff of suppression!
That must be why I am into ORCHIDS
