If Jamaica wants a better education system
then it has to come to terms with the fact that it will need to attract higher
qualified students into the teaching industry.
In Singapore and Finland they were able to
achieve a higher quality education system because the students who were
recruited for teacher training institutes/universities are of the same
standard/quality as those being recruited to study medicine.
Singapore and Finland found that their respective teacher performances showed a direct correlation with the matriculation
requirements to teacher training institutes/universities.In other words the higher the matriculation requirement, the higher the
performance of the teachers.
