Explusion of a leftist (female) student in Bahrain

"The decision to expel a student activist for circulating a leaflet highly critical of the University of Bahrain (UoB), the country’s only public university, has sparked criticism and renewed concerns about the ability of the country’s higher education system to meet the needs of the job market and keep pace with social reforms. The controversy over Noor Hussain’s expulsion could not have come at a worse time for the education authorities. " (thanks Mahmood)
