Hinkson: Debate exam


Share post:

An Opposition parliamentarian wants Government to clearly outline its position on the best system of transition of students from primary to secondary school.
“Let us debate it in Parliament, let us get the Government’s position on the issue and let us see where we are going in terms of our future development and of the whole process of the maturing of our youth,” Edmund Hinkson, the Barbados Labour Party spokesman on education, said during an address to students at the Gordon Greenidge Primary School.
He was giving an inspirational talk as 31 students prepared for today’s Common Entrance Examination.
The MP for St James North noted that the report of the National Advisory Commission on Education (NACE) had recommended that the annual examination be replaced and he urged that there be national debate on the matter. (LK)
