Comment:    Re: SHK 19.0400 Scrapping Final Shakespeare Examination?

Why is it that people so easily associate education with what is good  in life? 
The modern educational experience is antithetical to informed, mindful, 
inspiring enjoyment. It drives students into the arms of Disney. Producing 
Shakespeare, a consistent audience reaction I hear is "I never thought I would 
like Shakespeare after studying it in school." The schools will kill Shakespeare 
in the end. This is but a minor set back.
