teachers day - headIt is my fervent wish that this year, as we celebrate World Teachers’ Day, all teachers can develop a deep appreciation of the critical place they hold within our national structures. Today we find ourselves at one of the most significant junctures in our educational history. The education system has surmounted the challenges in relation to access to education at the most basic levels. Over eighty-five percent of our early childhood age cohort is accessing nursery education—something unprecedented in the Region—and we can all proudly celebrate our recent attainment of Universal Primary Education as a nation. Furthermore, we are on track to attaining our stated objective of Universal Secondary Education within the upcoming years.
