Board of Education told to be fair in laptop distribution programme

2

Cabinet Notes: The Chairman of the Board of Education, accompanied by the body’s Technology Officer, were invited to Cabinet in order to provide clarity on the laptop policy which schools will adopt at the Board’s guidance.

Three schools were identified as having been selected for the pilot phase, where 1,485 laptops are to be distributed to students in the 3rd, 4th and 5th Forms.

There was intense discussions among members as to why those preferred schools were selected.

There was a clear advantage which schools in the city enjoyed, over schools in rural Antigua; a pledge was made by the Board of Education officials to rectify that situation.

It was also agreed that there would be equitable distribution of the thousands of laptops and tablets that would follow the pilot phase.

Those students who have access to devices would not be eligible for the government-secured devices that are to be distributed.

  1. That statement had to be actually made and mentioned? This is Antigua. When we have the likes of dictator and traitor Gaston and his cronies in power, Antigua will never go forward.

    A serious change is needed and voting the same people in every time and expecting to get different results is pure ignorance.
