Former education minister Herbert Sabaroche has stepped up his campaign against the current education minister Peter St Jean, after suggesting that St Jean can be considered Dominica’s worst minister of education.
The minister has dismissed that claim in a brief response, telling DNO that it was “the exact opposite”.
St Jean said it was “evident for all to see that at this time in the history of Dominica, education has never been on a high as it is at this time in the history of Dominica”.
Sabaroche has since hit back, contending that Minister St Jean “seemed not to be learning on the job even if we know that he is neither fully qualified as an educator or in management and has limited policy management, implementation and evaluation experiences”.
According to Dominica Freedom Party (DFP) official Sabaroche, the Minister continues to grapple with critical challenges that need to be addressed at almost every level.
He also claims that St Jean is not “maximizing the use of the wealth of professional and experienced human resource capacity within the ministry and elsewhere”.
Referring to his own stint as education minister, DFP’s Herbert Sabaroche told DNO that “both deceased PM Roosevelt Douglass and Pierre Charles proclaimed to the nation that the then Minister Herbert Sabaroche was one of their best Minister (Education and then Health)”.
He was responding to Minister St Jean’s suggestion that he Sabaroche should “compare the performance of the government of Dominica and the minister of education against that which he did when he served”.
