trubadour: No, it's elsewhere also. Most of my ninth grade students (here in Taidong County) were not here this morning as they were off at the senior high schools they will be attending next semester. Five remained. I think two will be going to some kind of skills school, and the other three said they will be doing exams to get into their senior high schools. I think it's still necessary to do exams for the best schools, but there might be some affirmative action involved. I'm not sure.
