  • MoE responds to letter published in the Stabroek News

    Dear Editor,

     

    On Wednesday, September 27, 2023, a letter was published in the Stabroek News titled “Ministry of Education needs to rethink its approach to creating content”. In the letter, the author questions the Ministry of Education’s decision to develop mobile applications to deliver additional educational content.

    The author opined that with the plethora of educational apps, programmes and websites available, it would have been wise to utilize these options as opposed to developing our own. However, these applications do not align with the Ministry of Education’s curriculum.
