It is not our intention to sensationalize a fight at one of our leading and older secondary school. What we found interesting about the video is the unwillingness of the other school children to step-up and ‘part’ the fight until the eleventh hour. We will not write that fights never occurred in our day while at school, what we can write however is to expose the reality that fights at most schools across Barbados today are as common as night as day. In our day it was an uncommon occurrence.
Is our educational system failing us? We await the findings of a committee established by the new government to make sweeping recommendations to revamp our current system of education.
