My advice to most Caribbean parents is to try their very best to send their children to college in the USA, Canada or England, if they can afford it. And I use the word “if” so no one will misunderstand me.
An education in any of these countries will help them compete anywhere in the world.
There are some who will disagree, but it’s the truth. Even if you are a principal anywhere in the Caribbean you have to go back to school to be a teacher in the USA, unless the degree you have is affiliated with a college in one of these countries.
Someone with a driver’s license in the Virgin Islands can’t drive in the USA, unless he/she takes a driving test again, so an education in the Caribbean can only help you in the Caribbean, not in the USA. That’s why it’s important for most parents to try their best if they can and see that their children get a student visa, and study in one of these Countries.
God blessing to all in Jesus name.
