a month from now.
The relevance of this is that there are Guyanese, adult Guyanese, who are undertaking ethnic censuses of the top students. They are counting how many persons of one ethnicity are in the top ten and how many of another are. Do .
And why shouldn't they. If a particular group (ethnicity or gender) is under represented among the best academic performers then it makes sense to find out why.
So both Indians and Africans/mixed are well represented, but where are the Amerindians? They don't even get into the best schools much less be represented among the best performers 5 years later.
However all of this attention on a dozen or two kids obscures the fact that once again Guyana's average performance is below par. In addition only 37% of the kids taken CXC are boys, vs on average of 43% throughout the Caribbean. So not only do Guyanese under perform but our boys seem to be especially bad state.
Now proceed to argue about "who come first" in the CXC when it is apparent that most Guyanese came last!
