THE TRUST AGENDA STRIKES AGAIN!!!
Grand Cay, ABACO: After plunging the country into a bloody recession, stopping over $90 million in capital development contracts [including a school in Salina Point Acklins]. And after firing hundreds of government workers just after the May 2 general elections, the WUTLESS Ingraham government is now attempting to block young Bahamians from receiving a high school education.
Residents of Grand Cay Abaco, the constituency Hubert Ingraham represents, are decrying the lack of a fair and decent education at the local school on the island. “Ingraham says he is our representative, but he can’t be the Prime Minister of The Bahamas, denying students in Grand Cay a good education? And what is his minister of education doing [about the situation] is ridiculous,” an irate parent told Bahamas Press.
The parent said that since early this year, the Prime Minister and Carl Bethel both knew that the Grand Cay All Age School was without teachers in English, Geography and History. “The ministry of education also knew of this problem as parents have written and complained about the situation, but it is clear no one cares about the young future leaders of this country,” the parent said.
“Because of the lack of teachers, the B.G.C.S.E grade 12 students do not know what to study in these subject areas, and will not be able to sit these examinations in May 2009. The first term is already concluded,” the parent continued.
Bahamas Press has also learned that because of the shortage of educators, the school on the island is suspended early everyday, leaving students idle throughout the community. “I am concerned because my son is in the 11th grade and he is home early every day because there are no teachers for the mentioned subjects,” the parent said.
“This cannot be good, this cannot be right and why would Hubert Ingraham let his own community, which he has represented for the last 30 years, fall in such decay is beyond me. Ingraham does not care about us in Grand Cay! He does not care about the young people here! And from where I sit and what we see being played out across this country, with the hundreds now unemployed and taxed to their necks, he [Ingraham] could careless about the country even if sails to hell,” the parent told Bahamas Press.
Why Ingraham would allow this to happen to residents of his own constituency is beyond us. But much more importantly, why he would continue to allow a minister like Carl Bethel to sit idle and “DO NOTHING” in The Ministry of Education is far more shocking!
THE TRUST AGENDA STRIKES AGAIN!!! This time at the heart of the people in ABACO! WE NEED CHANGE!
