  1. I really really hope students will be better served from the next school year onwards.

    The poor planning of CXC council is shocking.
    They knew schools were unable to start this school year in ‘normal, pre pandemic circumstances’ yet they wait until 2 school days before CXC start date to pull this stunt.
    Talk ’bout stress ???
    I’m not buying what the council are selling.
    100% the Chair & councils fault.
    Any normal person with an iota of intelligence & common sense would have set June exam dates before Christmas, so every stakeholder could plan accordingly.
    But we seem to like it so, this last minute crap, and then beat our chests at how thoughtful, mighty & successful we are when we ‘ pull it off’.
    Appalling role modeling for our future leaders & professionals.
    Howabout a shake up at all these educational boards and have some ‘real world’ people participate? Our students & their families may be far better served.
