It does not look like every school is equipped with enough air-conditioned rooms to house all its Primary 6 pupils during the haze ("Schools taking steps to ensure PSLE rooms are haze free"; Oct 1).
Will every pupil sitting the PSLE have access to air-conditioned protection from the haze during this critical exam?
Having pupils sit the exams in open school halls, even with air purifiers, is not enough.
Perhaps the Education Ministry should look into ensuring that air-conditioning facilities in every school can house at least one entire cohort. The benefits will outweigh the costs in the long run.
This will ensure a level playing field across all schools and that every school is indeed a good school.
