Our educational sector plays a vital role in the development of this country. This DLP administration has always regarded education as one of the key developmental tools which would take this country forward. That decision made by the first DLP administration in 1961 to allow free secondary education for all Barbadians continues to be one of the foundation policies which accounts for all of the growth and development which this small country has accomplished since that time.
One vital component of the educational sector which requires some focus discussion is the Secondary School.
We note, with amazement, that the Opposition continues to dodge their work but yet still draw their salaries and dine at the tables of parliament. We hope that mature bodies who have a vital role to play in the development of this country do not adopt the bad habits and practices of our childish opposition lead by Ms. Mottley. However, we the members of the Democratic Labour Party will press on in our efforts to move this country forward. This week, we focus on secondary school education.
