What's the plan for whiz-kids?
THE EDITOR, Sir:
All teachers and administrative staff who are responsible for the increased pass rates in the math performances on the Caribbean exams must be commended for the effective learning methods used to gain successes. Certainly, such successes may be predicted in the future once similar emphasis is placed in those subject areas with consistent low pass rates.
Now that Jamaica is on the road to achieving high pass rates in these secondary exams, what's next? Of course, with so many passes, it will be even more competitive among students to not only gain entrance to the top higher-education institutions, but to also obtain entry-level employment.
So, how does the Government intend to deal with these post-secondary issues that will certainly increase in the future with so many top-performing students?
