Opposition Spokesperson on Education, Dr. Angela Brown Burke, is reiterating her calls for greater attention to be given to the Early Childhood and Special Education sectors.

Speaking with our News Center, Dr. Brown Burke says feedback from the sectors has suggested that educators need more help in getting back to face-to-face learning.

The Opposition Spokesperson says lessons taught to early childhood students mostly require face-to-face learning, which is currently lacking due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Brown Burke is also calling for national collaboration with all Education stakeholders.

She expressed that the Ministry must quickly engage educators who have a good understanding of the complexity of issues facing the education system to help craft solutions.
