The Bureaucracy Season

It's the bureaucracy season.

The teachers have to submit two documents to the ministry of education.  The scheme (pronouced SKIM - like the milk) and the log book.

The government has provided the course syllabus for all subjects, and it lists main topics, sub topics, teaching aids to be used, and many more.  The scheme is basically writing the same things word for word, adding the date that the teachers taught the topics, and writing short remarks.

The log book is basically the same thing as the above, but much less in content.

Apparently these documents are used to evaluate the teaching standards of each school.

As a big fan of efficient bureaucracy, this is totally ridiculous.
