We collaborate  with Indian college teachers and Indian historians  who are writing about Descendent of Indian Indenture Labourers  in Guyana and other countries. The Indenture Labourers program is not well known in India by the general population  and the Indian Ministry of Education plans to implement programs in school  to educate students, regarding this part of their history. 

There are also Chinese and Japanese university home-stay students  who read GNI often, regarding  studies in different cultures.

A question that comes up often and  would benefit  the teacher and university students is :

Which region  in Guyana has the highest academic achievement  of Indians and what is the reason for this achievement. They know these regions to be, Berbice, East Coast Demerara, Georgetown, West Coast Demerara, Essequibo  and the interior of Guyana.   

Please,  this is discussion for  international students and teachers  who will read our comments. The  manner  we portrait our self, will determine how they see us as Guyanese.

Later, they  also plan to ask similar questions regarding Afro Guyanese.

Thanks for your comments.

Basdeo Mangru wrote many books on this.

Leonora, 

Thanks. I grew up with Basdeo and his wife  at Albion and met them a few times in NY. He also used some of my pictures for his books and gave us dozens of Indians In Guyana for distribution in Guyana schools, during a project.

I was told, the books were for the previous government who placed an order, but after the books were printed, they changed their mind and the guy was left with thousands of dollars of printed books. Many  books were given to the  MOE in New Amsterdam, but they did not even had the courtesy to write him a TU letter, after I asked.  

I have his books, but I wanted the opinion of the some experts on GNI, who seem so intelligent with many subjects. Who also seem well versed in garbage writing, other than useful things.

If this thread was bashing someone, there might have been  pages of negative supporting each other.   Strange people, compared to those I visited in other developing countries.

Tola Banna, datt mek no sense wah so evva. Fussly;

1. A PO is a binding instrument enforceable in a court of law.  You cannot just issue and walk away. 

2.  He should have had a Letter Of Credit ensuring the funding for the order

3. He should have requested a security deposit when he initiated the printing. 

Dah wah yu seh deh nah mek no sense wah so evva!  None none none!

They know these regions to be, Berbice, East Coast Demerara, Georgetown, West Coast Demerara, Essequibo  and the interior of Guyana.

The answers to the questions have to be based on statistics. I have browsed the Ministry of Education of Guyana Website looking for results of  Examinations taken by students,will provide the info later to your students.

Perhaps some of the "Shitposters" can also take the task to speed up the information.

Thanks Django,  I really appreciate your efforts.  MOE could give stats, but what caused the academic achievements ? Better health care or parental/teacher concerns, etc ?  What was the motivation ?

For example in the 1960s in Berbice, after Jagan told farming families to educate their children, there was a surge of Indians graduating from UG, who went on to higher education. Many were my friends, who worked their rice fields on weekends.

BOOSIE FOR BRAINS.   Just like I said on my earlier post, know-it-all  'shitposters' are like  the main bottle-washing politician in Guyana and their Mahatma Trump,  who seem to have BOOSIE FOR BRAINS, by making statements  without knowing all the facts. Every time they open their mouth, only boosie flows.

Its  no wonder they fall on their ass in disgrace [in other countries] and might die in their negativity. For this reason, Afros in Guyana might always do better than some  Indians, who look for the first opportunity to stab another  Indian in the back.  Instead of building them up for the betterment of all.

Bai, these are before your time. PCE replaced School Leaving I think in 1963. PTA was abolished in 1963 I think.

In the 1950s/60s, I believe the mission primary [Albion Canadian Presbyterian] schools certificates were called : EDUCATION DEPARTMENT BRITISH GUIANA : PRIMARY SCHOOL CERTIFICATE. Signed by Director of Education with name of student, DOB, Date of Exam and Exam number.  I have a few for my family.

City and Guilds was GUYSUCO training centre, right  ?

General Certificate of Education [GCE] was also from the 50s and 60s.

And they must think very little of Guyanese when grown men, some even grand fathers, behave like primary school kids with their endless vulgarity.

Mitwah, Tola, Cain, Mars, ronan, django and warrior come to mind. Maybe you should give these boys a lesson in social media etiquette.
