Gopeesingh must stop SEA politics *

I write baffled as to why former Education minister Tim Gopeesingh continues to condemn current Education Minister Anthony Garcia on every effort made in education.


Question for Minister Garcia *

The Express of July 6 reports the Minister of Education as saying 803 children under the age of 13 scored less than 30 per cent in the 2017 Secondary Entrance Assessment and they have the opportunity to resit the exam.
