July 20, 2012, St John’s Antigua – The ministry of education on Monday will encourage public dialogue on its draft education sector plan for the next six years.
The 17-page document outlines the vision for development of primary education, universal secondary education, among other areas. It also looks at increasing the number of teachers and a policy framework for regulating pre-schools so students transition smoothly to kindergarten.
The first education plan for Antigua and Barbuda was accepted in 2002. According to the Ministry of education, its implementation was hampered by several factors which included extended delays.
