Second Chance Programme To Get Its Own Home

Troy Allen of the Second Chance Programme with Samantha Marshall, Minister

The government says it will build a brand new edifice to meet the growing requirement of The Second Chance Program.

This program allows those who left school without earning CXC subjects to return to taking classes that are offered at no cost by the Government.

At present, more than 1,400 students are enrolled in the program; that number is growing, causing classes to be held at several venues since the building assigned has become too small.

Additionally, the passes in CXC subjects, including mathematics, are relatively high among these young adults.

The Cabinet decided at its meeting on Wednesday that a central place and a reasonable amount will be spent to meet the growing demands.

    • Seriously? Dont you understand what second chance means? Please take several seats to the back of the bus and take your personal gripe with you.

    • I suggest that you go and read your Bible so that you may understand the life of Jesus, especially his response to those who brought the woman caught in adultery, to be stoned. I pray the good Lord will forgive you for your perfect self of your ignorance and give you a second chance. Without a doubt, your mentality needs divine intervention.

    • He without sin cast the first stone. We all Antiguans like ugly and so what. He has made a name for himself and done a wonderful job. I am a product of the second chance last year I took 4 CXC subjects and I passed all four with a grade 1 two grade twos and 3. I am presently doing another CXC subject along with a Cape. I go off to college in September kudos to Mr.Allen I recieved a scholarship you don’t want any thing better than that. Please leave the man last in the past n applaud him for what he is doing in the future.
