TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – A joint campaign mounted by two of Taiwan’s most prominent high schools to
cease the tradition of publishing college entrance exam results has garnered mass support of schools and students across the island Saturday.
Taiwan is due to release the results for the latest round of college entrance exams on Feb. 25.
In a letter, the all-boys Kaohsiung Municipal Kaohsiung Senior High School joined hands with Kaohsiung Municipal Kaohsiung Girls’ Senior High School in the southern city of Taiwan to call for an end to the practice of leaking students’ scores to the media.
The practice is slammed by the students as leading to wide media coverage hailing outstanding academic achievement as the only model of success while causing privacy concerns, according to reports. [FULL STORY]
