Parents/stakeholders still fighting for improved grades


PARENTS AND stakeholders in the ministries of education across the region are still not letting up in the fight for improved grades for students who sat this year’s Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) and received poor scores.

Sources said there is an upcoming Zoom conference in which parents, representatives of student bodies, consultants, teachers and various ministries of education officials are expected to thrash out issues regarding the Caribbean Examination Council’s (CXC) review system, as weeks had passed without students receiving all of their reviews.

“This is a parent-led initiative involving all the stakeholders of the ministries of education across the region and the review system is prompting it,” said a concerned parent, who did not want to be identified.

“The frustration is that since October 18 Sir Hilary Beckles had promised for the reviews to be turned around within a week and it is six weeks since then. (SB)
