School IDs for all

This is a open letter to the Minister of Education Dr Tim Gopeesingh.

Sir, this is is just my humble addition to the idea of ID cards for teachers.

Please include all members of staff as well as all students with biometric cards, so it would be recorded when students are late or absent and how much time teachers or auxiliary staff are away from the school. This could lead to better management by the principals as well.

Teachers and students are now equipped with tablets so it is time that the ministry make available wi-fi throughout the schools, and not only in staff rooms and libraries, so that technology could be utilised in the classrooms.
