Government working to achieve teacher-pupil ratio of 1:25, says minister

MONTEGO BAY, St James — Education Minister Senator Ruel Reid says the Government is working on the revised policy for the establishment of a new overall teacher-pupil ratio of 1:25.

“For the technical areas, we will have a ratio of 1:20 (one teacher to 20 students). This will allow for closer attention to be given to each student,” he said.

 

The minister was speaking on the third and final day of the Jamaica Teachers' Association (JTA) conference at the Hilton Resort and Spa in St James on Thursday.
