Where were the college security officers for the vice principal to be calling the law enforcers? You do not trust trust in your staff? Kaya musova.

Yes, this is logical……..the police couldn’t pick the phone from the principal, I think they were scared of interfering with academic freedom.

Why should students be paid for their own learning? This must stop. Countries have either tuition or free university education, not student allowances! What is the rationale for this allowance? Even a book allowance does not make sense. Colleges should stock libraries well and students should take care of their own pen, pencils and printing paper.
