  3. Where are you going to fill that gap? At Monroe? After that where are you going to work? In St. Lucia Civil Service I presume? Useless qualifications. What gives Gus Small any qualifications to run a school which offers Masters degrees? I thought Universities had heads of departments, Chancellors etc., and such institutions were teaching institutions with professors, PhDs, etc whos academic backgrounds can stand to international scrutiny. At the moment even UWI is struggling to maintain its academic integrity. When you have people like our former PM alleging publicly that anything that comes from or happens at UWI he has the privilege of knowing before it happens. This opens up a whole new speculative perspective on the operations of UWI when one considers that the Former PM's wife is head of department. When we also take into context the political entanglement of heads of departments with political parties with reference to persons such as Tennyson Joseph then we can fathom just how easy we can bring such esteemed institutions into disrepute.

    Too much politics involved in controlling dependent rocks in the Caribbean Sea.

    • Your complaint is quite legitimate. You have alluded to the insidious and "incestuous" dysfunctional relationships. However, this reflects the insularity with which we in Saint Lucia are cursed. We always fail to see "the big picture."

      If you look very closely at the productivity of those emerging out of UWI as graduates, and even lecturers, outside their academic settings from UWI, you will of course recognize a very shocking but unpalatable truth.

      UWI, like a certain ex-PM has lost its way.

      UWI today is a major component of our growing underDEVELOPMENT. This has been this for a very long time now -- perhaps ever since that time our very own Sir Arthur Lewis left that institution.

      Monroe's course offerings undergirds the "make-do" and makeshift "get a degree for a cushy government job" attitude.

      It will take mission and vision from a very nationalistic and narrow perspective to have higher education fulfill its higher purpose regarding our very own national goals.
