First, I recognize the effort of the teachers, parents and students in preparing for the NGSA And the success. Second, the ministry needs to tell us what percentage of students actually passed the grade 6 examination. Third, they need to tell parents of students attending public schools what will be done differently so that a greater percentage of students actually pass the examination. Fourth, the exam results point to the elitist nature of the education system. If a parent can find the Money to send his/ her child to a private school, there is a higher probability of that student doing better at the NGSA. The same applies if that child attends school in Region 4 and Georgetown. Fifth, the minister needs to inform the public what changes hex will make to the high level personnel of the ministry so that new ideas and approaches are brought to the front to tackle the unacceptable results oF the public school students at the NGSA.
