No End to PSD Crisis

MCA claims that over 400 complaints were received from top scorers who failed to get the PSD scholarships, including over 100 who obtained straight As. Should I even be surprised? I agree transparency has been a major issue in this crisis. A vice-principal of a K-8 school wrote in to urge the PSD to be more transparent over the awarding of scholarships while another reader called on the PSD to reveal the criteria for receiving the scholarships. Unless positive steps are taken soon by the relevant parties, this crisis will keep spiralling down and drag everyone with it.

On a related issue, a commentary was made regarding the issue of colleges, college universities and full-fledged universities. My views on the issue can be found here.
