Context + perspective equals critical thinking

If you lack context(background data about the issue) and perspective (present conditions and new developments) you don’t have the authority to comment or judge.

From 1975 to 1986, Uganda was at war. Lots of internal wars and civil instabilities. There are few mothers with birth certificates. Many people ‘estimated their birth dates.’ More information emerges as to grow. And so dates change. And folks who indeed wrote exams themselves and never cheated got average marks owing to the lack of reading materials in many schools and the poor quality of teachers at the time, and over the years. Access to education resources has started recently, as near as 2006!

Indeed, many folks are holding top jobs with fake academic documents.

Judge a man and woman by their outcomes, not inputs. Academic papers are inputs. They do not guarantee skills, common sense, results, leadership and resilience. Be like doctors— diagnose then treat.
