Minister of Education to Meet With CARICOM Secretariat     

Minister of Education the Honourable Anthony Garcia will be part of a meeting convened by the Caribbean Community Secretariat (CARICOM Secretariat) and joined by other regional Ministers of Education to discuss CXC’s Strategy for the administration of regional examinations. The Ministry of Education is aware of the concerns shared by parents, teachers and students and these concerns will be tabled during this meeting and, subsequently, information and the position of the Government of Trinidad and Tobago will be shared with the national population.

It has been brought to the attention of the Ministry that there have been many sources of misinformation circulating in the public domain which has led to the confusion of education stakeholders. Citizens are advised that any communication on the direction of the Ministry of Education during the COVID-19 pandemic will be available on the official channels of the Ministry and the Ministry of Communication; these should be the only points of reference used for valid information.

The Ministry of Education continues to work toward ensuring that clear decisions are communicated to the public through stakeholder engagement and will share the decisions taken and policies created in the coming week.
