Government to use satellite campuses to provide access to learning

A new government initiative to provide access to Dominicans for learning is to begin soon.

Minister for Education, Petter Saint-Jean said the programme, to establish satellite campuses at secondary schools, will be done in collaboration with the Dominica State College (DSC).

“The Dominica State College has sought to provide diverse offerings to its clients. At the Dominica State College, we are setting plans in place to explore learning in a setting that supports a comprehensive progressive curriculum, for the Honourable Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and the government of the Commonwealth of Dominica,” he stated.

He says satellite Campuses will be established at various secondary schools around the island to provide greater access to Dominican learners.

“There will be a heavy focus on skills training for employability as the young people are empowered with certification for jobs here in Dominica and further afield,” Saint-Jean stated.

The minister said the government’s new policy that makes education at the Dominica State College free, ensures that every learner who desires to do so, can access these new opportunities.

    Here they go again. These election stunts are coming in torrents. This is what the slothful Skerrit led DLP regime does best every election cycle. They come with their lies and when they get it work, they, themselves, are shocked at how gullible the citizens are. A people get exactly the government they deserve. If the people are well informed and enlightened, they get a government that works for them. If the people are ignorant, apathetic and easily fooled, they get a government that works against them while the misleader and his servile missionaries accumulate illgotten wealth for themselves that they can never legitimately account for. It’s the people who have the power to decide the government of their choice. Rid the country of this electioneering government.

    What they need to do, or at least consider, is to demonopolize the book store. Allow other players in the market to bring down the cost of text books on island. What about non-scholarship/bursary families? My children are grown, but when I hear the stories of parents, some single, it’s frightening the cost of text books now. Woe betide those with more than one child in school.

    I hope the twin brothers Lennox Linton, Thomas Letang, and so-called Workers clowns including followers will be at the forefront for that one. It’s being set up with you guys in mind please don’t waste the opportunities to learn and behave yourselves.

      Never a sensible comment to activate a single brain cell. There is nothing offered to spur intellectual curiosity. How much does a brain like this worth? $ 0.00
