The LCs have been put through too much emotional, psychological, mental pressure....

The Minister's secret "Plan B" needs to be aired and hammered out rather than dragging this on until the end of May, unnecessarily prolonging that pain.

Meanwhile, here's another suggested alternative, something along the lines which I think fellow professionals in education might support. I am encouraging a conversation around this so as to help the idea take seed and grow. Please forward to all interested education partners.

Rough outline of the idea:

1. Request schools/ teachers to predict grades (in bands of 20%), all things being equal; remove any recourse to legal challenges i.e. parents/students would be asked to 'accept this or repeat the year'. As a double check the DES could check each school's predicted results against their long term performance  for each teacher/subject say as an average over a five, maybe ten year period.

2. Let the LCs off to college, for first year where they would do a general course in the broader area in which they wish to specialise. Let the college first year exams/assessments 2021 be the big decider in place of LC 2020.

3. Our LC students need this torture to end, they have more than earned and more than need their summer break.

4. Time to really think outside the box, everbody, please!
