Barbados still among tops for education – CXC official

Barbados is among the top ten countries in the world when it comes to its high standard of education.

Addressing the opening ceremony of the 48th Meeting of the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) at the Hilton, Deputy Council Chairman Dr Marcia Potter Barbados Resort offered, “sincere congratulations, to the Government and people of Barbados through the Minister of Education [Ronald] Jones, on Barbados being named number nine in the world’s best school systems”.

She explained that Barbados currently ties with Japan and New Zealand for nineth place, coming after Estonia, Ireland, Qatar, Netherlands, Singapore, Belgium, and Finland.

This is based on the latest World Economic Forum report, published in September.

Potter also congratulated Barbados for attaining 50 years of independence, saying, “throughout its history Barbados has built on the legacies of one generation to the next to become the nation it is today.

“The Barbados pride is evident and has lifted the country and people who have much to be thankful for.”

The CXC official added that “Barbados’ success is the region’s success. And when one celebrates, we all celebrate. And when one falls, we all fall.”

    Are you awake? There are so many qualified idiots in Barbados it ain’t funny. Just take a look at the ones running this country. I heard of a highly qualified doctor who ordered a man to go in a room and strip naked and all that man went to him for was a stubbed toe.
