CARICOM education ministers meet to discuss CXC exams

Trinidad and To­ba­go’s Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion, An­tho­ny Gar­cia, along with oth­er Min­is­ters of Ed­u­ca­tion in the re­gion, is meet­ing with the CARI­COM Sec­re­tari­at to dis­cuss CXC’s Strat­e­gy for the ad­min­is­tra­tion of re­gion­al ex­am­i­na­tions.

Ac­cord­ing to a re­lease from the ed­u­ca­tion min­istry, the con­cerns of par­ents, teach­ers and stu­dents over CXC ex­ams will be ad­dressed at the re­gion­al meet­ing, and a way for­ward will be de­ter­mined by CARI­COM ed­u­ca­tion min­is­ters.

The min­istry says it is aware of sev­er­al sources of mis­in­for­ma­tion cir­cu­lat­ing in the pub­lic do­main, which it states have led to con­fu­sion among ed­u­ca­tion stake­hold­ers.

The min­istry is ad­vis­ing cit­i­zens that any com­mu­ni­ca­tion on the di­rec­tion of the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion dur­ing the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic will be avail­able via its of­fi­cial chan­nels and the Min­istry of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion. It says these chan­nels should be the on­ly points of ref­er­ence used for valid in­for­ma­tion.

The Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry as­sures that any de­ci­sions tak­en at the cur­rent CARI­COM meet­ing, as well as pol­i­cy de­ci­sions tak­en by the T&T gov­ern­ment, will be shared soon with the na­tion­al pop­u­la­tion.
