Education Minister Ronald Thwaites, has announced that the administration of a teachers training college has decided to restructure the institution’s programmes to focus more on offering courses in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

While not identifying the college, Thwaites said the move augurs well for the education ministry’s efforts on strengthening and advancing the teaching and learning of mathematics, which he stressed was below par.

Additionally, he said that the move will go a far way to advance the ministry’s thrust to have schools, particularly at the secondary level, focus on offering more technically and vocationally-oriented subjects in their curricula.

Thwaites was speaking at the closing session of a two-day retreat for the ministry’s mathematics specialists.
