The political class has failed to reform an education system that is now basically destroying the lives of a major portion of our only resource, our people. I am sometimes amazed, that those who for the better part of four decades, propped up the system, are now crying crocodile tears. The simple truth is that in our society, the educated elite, relishes the social and economic elevation the so-called “good” education guarantees them. Their legacy is to pass on the same to their children and grand children. It is from within this process, that the great and powerful political managerial class has emerged.

Those who attempt to institute change find themselves ostracized or are forced to join the elites even if they are never fully accepted. In some cases, those who benefitted from the elitist system, never make their mark and usually become bitter and despondent because they have failed to read the game. They are to be found unleashing their venom on the same political class they aspired to but failed to find any success.

Hence we have a society that cannot come to terms with its strengths or its challenges and is constantly falling short of simple national goals, such as the collection of garbage and the proper delivery of water to its citizens. While the weather can be blamed for some of our current water shortages, the simple truth is that all the engineers and scientists we have produced at the University of the West Indies, have failed to solve any of our problems. They being the crème de crème of the educational system are by far the greatest evidence that it has failed.

If indeed we accept that the society is falling apart, we must be intellectually honest and own up to how and why it is falling apart. Somewhere in some primary school, we are right now producing citizens who will spend the next thirteen years or so of their lives, receiving instruction that will guarantee them unemployment. In that same class room, we are producing the next litter of Napoleon’s pups that will destroy those who will be at the mercy of the elites. We will parade Napoleon’s litter for all to see and they will then continue the slaughter. This is the society we now have.

That is why more and more citizens will refuse to pick up litter that is not theirs. We have seen what happens to the Boxers of this world. Nobody wants to be other peoples’ corned beef. That system no longer works and we can continue to fool ourselves forever but that Barbados where we were taught to only take instruction and orders is quickly disappearing. And that is what the political managerial class and the non productive educated elites fear most. Soon those who are rabid apologists for the political managerial class will also see the largesse disappearing and they too will learn not to depend on fleecing the society. In other words, we all have a date with destiny. In order to have the society that will benefit all of our citizens, we must first have an educational system that embraces all of our children. Otherwise things will continue to just fall apart.

    “Take for example China they were proactive having the vision years in advance to see that global changes were going to be the backbone of their survival and made all the necessary adjustment through their educational system ,”

    Not at all Ac not all. China’s sudden ascendancy as an economic power house was fuelled by an industrial and manufacturing and technological revolution cradeld in Shanghai which suddenly propelled the great civilisation out of the dark ages was fuelled by capitalist intervention which was fuelled by the capitalist thirst for cheap chinese labour all carefully stoked in the Silicon Valley California the true capital of the great Satan.

    “@ David,
    Errol Barrow had no vision if he did he would have known that the Singapore model could not work in Bim. Barrow wasted a whole lot of time and ended up making cosmetic changes and followed a colonial model of development for which we are still paying a high price today. By the end of Barrow’s term in 1976, the country was already on the skids”

    This comment has much merit Skins but I would not go so far as to say Mr Barrow had no vision. The evidence under his watch does not support such a contention but perhaps there could be some support if you said the ideas were not all of his vision.

    As you can see, lately, there are all types of other accusations against him which are shocking to say the least…I thought not paying insurance claims and unfairing people were. bad enough and never thought he could be accused of more.

    The Education system in Bim is very effective because it has achieved its intended results i.e CONSUMERS. Now had the OverClass in Bim really wanted a thinking,productive populace they would have allowed their subjects to EDUCE i.e to draw from within rather than to indoctrinate them. The structure is designed with built in biases wherein a student is praised for learning by memorization while the student who has a natural affinity as a builder of society, a maker of fine linens or as an agricultural engineer with an aversion to being force-fed another man’s way of learning/thinking is cast aside as ‘not-bright.’ And Voici…….A Greedy, Corrupt System where bling is king irregardless of how its obtained. This system is brought to by the Prussians where you can memorize and get a BS …Bull Shit degree, MS…More shit or better yet a Phd..Piled High in Deep Shit and what has Barbados done with such accolades but sit back and become a monkey see monkey do society where every law,code,rule is copied from the US, UK or Canada and put into practice. In this way you don’t even have to sit and think about what is good and beneficial for the citizens, just copy,cut and paste. As a result you don’t produce THINKERS just Literate Monkeys.

    The educated system as practiced today esp. in the Western world is about keeping Avarice, Corruption and many other vices foremost in our minds

    There was a time on this planet when knowledge was not limited to 3 or 4 degrees, knowledge was 360*.

    Nothing will change for the better until the society is led by WISE MEN & WOMEN not ‘educated’ persons. When the society gets back to practicing UNIVERSAL law then will we see a change for the better.

    So till such time STOP HATING THE PLAYERS & HATE THE GAME..because that’s all it is a game. Even the Players at that local level are manipulated.

    Is it not true that Stuart is the only PM who actually allows his ministers to get in and out of hot water on their own? We have become so accustomed to the “maximum leader” approach, that we may be underestimating Stuart’s leadership style. If we examine all the issues with which this current cabinet has been involved, we note that Stuart does not ever play to the tune of the Nation newspaper or VOB. This in my humble estimation frustrates them to no end. Perhaps we are yearning for another Barrow, Adams(Tom) or Arthur, who greeted us on the front pages every morning as if the ministers could not speak for themselves.

    According to information received, another lawyer who should be featured in “Lawyers in the News” is Michael Lashley. I was reliably informed that a few years ago a man who worked in Africa a number of years for the United Nations accumulated approximately $300,000 in savings and sent it to Lashley. He said one of the reasons he saved money was to pay for his children’s university education.

    Unfortunately, Lashley spent the man’s money, which resulted in a civil suit being filed against him. Lashley told the court he was broke and could only afford to pay the man $100 per month. It is my understanding that Lashley has about 13 other cases in court for misappropriation of clients’ funds.

    A check of the court records should verify if what the man told me was true.

    It is also alledged that one of Lashley’s niece won $50,000 from the “double draw” and gave it to him when he was Minister of Housing and Lands to secure a house for her. She said her uncle kept the money and “up till now” she aint get nuh house.

    These problems with Lawyers and money are easy to solve:

    1 Escrow Accounts must be instituted.

    2 Legal fraternity must have insurance Compensatory Plan. Insurer will set conditions because they will not be eager to payout frequently.

    3 Lawyers transgressing will be going to Dodds quickly and for long periods!
