the implementation plan for standardising to Delphi over Java

Hi All,

This past Tuesday, I met in person with Deputy Minister Enver Surty
regarding the implementation plans to standardise to Delphi over Java with
respect to Basic Education.
A number of people and myself, from both the industry and academic setting,
have studied the document entitled "IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR STANDARDISING
PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE FOR INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY FOR 2015" [1]. This
document was put forward by the Department of Basic Education in response
to the criticism they received in the media.* *Study of the document shows
that the rationale behind the standardisation to Delphi is flawed in
several aspects.

What I'm proposing here, and asking for, is support in calling for the
National Department of Education to action a re-evaluate process that would
see a number of inaccuracies with respect to Java, the programming language
and technology, be addressed in the revised document. We believe that
these inaccuracies have had a significant effect on the final proposal
which supports Delphi as the programming language of choice.

You can support this "call to action" by signing the below petition.
