There is a very serious problem in a system secondary education where over 90% of the people are merely passing through education to obtain a certificate to append after their names. People these days go to school to pass and obtain certificate and not to learn. Cheating is now rampant at public examinations. These menace assumed a large and frightening dimension that has created hopes for early solution.
