Overhaul education sector

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Many thanks to Jaevion Nelson ('Jamaica's educated elite', July 15, 2017) for his insightful piece on the educational deficiency in our country.

Yes, it's true that we like to exaggerate the effectiveness of our schools with misplaced encomiums, but the fact remains that the failure of thousands is only seen as our intellectual superiority - something that most are not willing to examine, let alone change. Our putative education seems to be a smokescreen for the reinforcement of cosmetic achievements instead of systemic overhaul.
