Education system perpetuates mediocrity, says Minister , more school for all!

Monday, January 28, 2008

Jamaica's Education Minister Hon Andrew Holness has declared that students who pass less than five CXC subjects will soon be required to stay in school for an additional two years
"We are going to introduce compulsory two years of post-secondary education...The policy is that education is compulsory from zero to 18. The position of the government is that none of our human resources must be wasted." Minister Holness made these comments at the opening ceremony of research day at the Mona Campus of the University if the West Indies, where he also stated that of the grade 11 cohort of more than 53,000 students, only 10,347 passed four or more subjects in the Caribbean Examinations Council's (CXC) Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) exam.
However, the Minister was unable to state a specific date for the implementation of this post secondary education program.

Well done
Once again, my hat goes off to this administration for not just talking the talk but by walking it. I have long to see real change and dedication from our policy makers. Thanks mr. Golding and fellow official for taking jamaica at heart.
Education is the key to success only through education we can ease the burden of poverty, and create a strong jamaica. With a smart nation, success will always be there.

jamaican school
well i understand everyone liking the idea of forcing the students' to pass all five exams but many of you have fail to notice it's actually going to decline the number of kids who have to attend school, because if they could not pass three, think reasonable do really think they r going to pass the five exams! an you have to understand the kids who don't like school many have no oppertunity such as the people, who support this idea,I would like to say we need economic development before we can pressure students to pass the hardest exam i believe to graduate any high school, anyone from america talking about the test they had to take to graduate, an they believe they should do the same to jamaicam students, is being idioti, why becaues american exit level test r simple an none challenge!
