In its effort to review, revise, upgrade and extend the Education Sector Strategic Plan, the Ministry of Education will be conducting an Inquiry into the Education System. The Inquiry is intended to provide “evidential bases” for the revision, upgrading and extension of the Plan, the ministry announced this morning.
It has invited the public to submit memoranda on their perceived state of the System, inclusive of factual illustrations where possible, and recommendations for the enhancement of the System.
Memoranda should be submitted no later than May 14, 2016 and should be addressed to the Ministry of Education Inquiry Secretariat c/o the Ministry of Education, 26 Brickdam, Stabroek.
The ministry said persons who will be desirous of supplementing their memoranda with oral presentations, to the Commission, may indicate, in their submission, the desire to do so.
Additionally, persons who are desirous of making oral submissions without submitting memoranda may also write to the Commission, no later than April 30, 2016, expressing the desire to do so.
In this regard, the ministry will be hosting a Press Conference on Wednesday at which Minister of Education, Dr Rupert Roopnaraine, and other officials in the Education Ministry are expected to be present.
