Ms Corona and to whoever else made the statments of educational systems,

I actually do not know who or what you are, however I do observe that
contrary to good scientific practices and temper, you are quick to
make rather sweeping generlizations ....would you state you basis, or
is n=1 a good distribution for your statistics?

..... and what may I ask is the objective basis for you, again, to

every information is available out there, and this forum need not
exist in the first place.
