The Ministry of Education intends to pay greater attention to supervision of schools this calendar year.

Director of Education, Clare Browne, speaking on the work that will be carried out in this the second term of the academic year and going forward said mentoring and monitoring what is taking place in classrooms across the public education system in the country are priorities.

“We will continue to have targeted training for teachers and continue to do everything we can to scaffold students’ learning, Mr. Browne said.

Supplying schools with adequate internet service is another area where emphasis is being placed. The director of education has credited the Ministry of Information, Broadcasting, Broadcasting, Telecommunications and Information Technology for the work it continues to do in making the service available to students and teachers.

“They have done an excellent job in ensuring our public secondary schools are fully outfitted with internet; 100 megabytes spread across the school plants. They have started to work with the primary schools and then the private institutions will follow,” he noted.

According to Mr. Browne, the Board of Education will continue providing laptops for students and teachers, adding attention is currently being given to second form students. Refurbished E-Books have been distributed to first formers, which will be replaced once new laptops are sourced.

“We will continue to ensure that we provide our charges with the best possible education that we can,” Director Browne assured.

In light of the adjustments that were made to the teaching and learning process, curriculum recovery will continue throughout the system, particularly in primary schools, focusing on literacy and numeracy.

  1. No point supervising classrooms that are empty because the teachers and students are off with COVID. Schools must be closed now

  2. The Ministry of Education keeps opening new blocks at the Sir Novelle Richards Academy, but where are the science laboratory and library ?

    This is a secondary school that goes up to the form 5 level, yet there is no science laboratory on the compound.
    Is CXC aware that the students of this school are seriously handicapped by the lack of a science lab ? Is the local CXC registrar not concerned about this situation ?

    You talk about greater supervision of school during this academic year, but heck where is the proper planning ? Did you throw that through the door also ?

    It is time that the people who manage the education system become serious about the proper development of education in our nation and stop being all talk and no substance.

    Mr. Director of education, Mr. CXC Registrar, Mr. Minister of Education: The school needs a science lab. How can you have a secondary school and there is no science lab. In this period of advancement, it is JOKE that you are making because you really cannot be serious.
    The parents of that school need to take their protest to the ministry of education. Your children are seriously disadvantaged.
