  1. I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE QUALIFICATIONS. JUST THINK OF THE THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN THAT LEFT SCHOOL THIS YEAR THAT WILL NOT GET A JOB PLUS THE NUMBER OF SCHOOL LEAVERS THAT ARE OUT OF SCHOOL YEARS AGO, SO WHY YOUR'LL ARE TALKING ABOUT GETTING CXC PASSES FOR, IT SHOULD BE FOR ALL CHILDREN EDUCATED OR NOT BECAUSE IS NOT EVERYBODY THAT WILL HAVE MONEY TO SEND THEIR CHILD TO A PROPER SCHOOL TO GET AN EDUCATION.

  2. I've noticed that in all the initiatives being brought forward to help the youth, none really caters for secondary school drop outs. So if you have no cxc's your only hope is STEP...?

    • Don't you agree that those who persisted in school and did the work so as to have those CXC's. yet remain unemployed should be accommodated first?
      The longest journey begins with the first step!

      Hate dogs, if you will, but admit that they have white teeth (better in our creole version)

      As in give jack his jacket, of course! Your adamant refusal to give the current administration credit for any initiative whatsoever, is starkly in evidence!

    • They should not have dropped out then. The kids who remained at school and are more persistent, should be given the first choice. I work in IT, I would love to help.
