Malta's educational system has seen several changes in the last years, but is it producing the desired results?

Why do illiteracy rates remain high and why do so many employers keep lamenting that they cannot find quality workers?

Times Talk last Tuesday discussed Malta's educational successes and failings. Watch the programme, presented by Herman Grech and Mark Micallef, in its entirety in the above video.
