The SEA results for 2018 will be released today by the Ministry of Education. High on the agenda for heated discussion will be why the denominational schools are allowed to select 20 per cent of their pupils.
The Concordat that was developed and signed by the Government and denominational schools in 1960 allows this among other things. It requires that principals make available a minimum of 80 per cent of Form One spaces to the Government to fill. These pupils must pass the test (SEA now).
