Minister with responsibility for Education, Youth and Information, Karl Samuda, says the Government is committed to creating a level playing field at the secondary level in order to ensure that students at both traditional and non-traditional institutions have equal opportunities to excel.
“We're going to give every child an opportunity to be as equal as the one who's coming from the traditional high school. That is our commitment, because without that commitment and without that determination, we are not going to be able to build the Jamaica that we love to talk about and that we love to boast about,” he said.
Minister Samuda was delivering the keynote address at the launch of the Edward Seaga Scholarship Awards at Spanish Court Hotel in New Kingston on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, he said that focus will be placed on nurturing students at the pre-primary and primary levels in order to ensure that they are adequately prepared for high school.
