So I'm very torn about the changes.
I didn't give too much literal meaning to "care about". The point I took away was that in a policy decision that will positively affect some and negatively affect others, the interest served in satisfying certain constituencies is not always decisive in coming to a final result.

What is the general profile of your students who are not in one of the winning constituencies? I am sure you are not just lying down and taking it..........how are you working around it?
