the D-List

Check this story out and then come back to me. Bahamas D Average

Ok, so you’ve read it? What are your thoughts on what the government can do to improve exam grades? BGCSEs stem from the British education system. As we were a British colony, we still follow many British traditions and procedures of doing things. It is a sad state for our education though. My issue comes with the fact the the government could spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a gambling referendum and minimally invest in our future i.e. kids and their education.

Of course I know that it is a cyclic situation when parents can’t invest a lot of time in their kids’ schoolwork because they have to work extra hours just to support their family or they themselves didn’t receive proper education. It takes a village to raise a child and this big village that is our country is not putting as much effort as it needs to. Instead, they blame teachers, who are expected to be everything and then some for 20 + students every day. I’ve heard some colleagues that are teachers say that they have given many a students lunch money and have had to buy much of their supplies out-of-pocket. Why are the classrooms lacking the necessities???

I know for a fact that I was not a D-student, nor were any of my friends. And it wasn’t because I went to a private high school. Five of the smartest people I know all went to government (public) schools. All students don’t have that natural smart or talent but they should not be left behind because of it.
