Minister with responsibility for the Education portfolio, Karl Samuda, says in a few days the Ministry will release individual reports on the performance of each student in the first sitting of the Primary Exit Profile, PEP, exam.
Minister Samuda was addressing the House of Representatives this afternoon.
Minister Samuda told the House that fewer than 10% of the students who sat the PEP exam showed limited or no evidence of the required competencies required for subjects at the Grade 7 level.
He says these students will be given support.
Schools To Collaborate
Minister Samuda says the government has adopted a policy of encouraging better-performing schools to collaborate with those not doing well.
And Minister Samuda told the House that he’s sent a strong signal to all chairpersons and members of school boards.
