Dear Editor,

Thank you Joyce for responding to my views. You are correct in pointing out that my assumption was incorrect - as I had mentioned, it was an assumption. But that does not, by an inch divert my point from the fact that those responsible for such an appointment had a set criteria for their selection.

Besides that, they have their own staff at the Tourism Ministry teaching the course as well (Joyce words). Again its the Tourism program that decides on who should teach it. See Victoria's comments for students' perspectives.

Likewise having students lining up in front of your office for assistance with assignments should not be used as a yardstick to measure the credibility of the lecturers. As always, students will always be students, they will always explore ways to answer their assignments and tutorial questions. Why else would they be turning up at your door.
