    “God and Nature made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Follow always that great law. Let the sky and God be our limit and Eternity our measurement.”

    “A people (especially our youths) without knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”

    Celebrating our History is necessary. However, “History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are but, more importantly, WHAT THEY MUST BE.”

    Everything in life is related to STEM and business. EVERYTHING!!!
    STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics.
    We must be clear about the purpose of our own education system:
    To develop our individual and collective human potentials and values – physically, mentally, spiritually – manifested in our ability to create, innovate, produce and distribute goods and services we need for ourselves and others.To achieve this we MUST PRIORITIZE STEM, business/finance/trade curriculum powered by our OECS and CARICOM creative Arts in EVERY PUBLIC SCHOOL and INSTITUTION, year-round in school, extra-curricular programs (after school activities), summer.

    Our economic growth and social development REQUIRE that REFORM and RESTRUCTURE now, from the continuing colonial education for elite management and unskilled labor that our colonizers intentionally pursued successfully for their purpose.
