    Education has been politicized. To bring about quality
    education that prepare one to thrive in a knowledge
    society involves making some hard choices. It means
    taking stance that the government and even some
    parents, education unions and other vested interest do

    towards knowledge society, and towards the direction
    that we believe in?
