Education Minister, Ruel Reid, says the migration of teachers especially those qualified to teach Mathematics, Science and Technology, is still a problem.

Last September, Minister Reid lamented the high migration rate of Math and Science teachers.

He says the ministry has responded by offering some 300 scholarships for teachers being trained in those areas.

He says the Education Ministry may also consider using technological tools that can replace teachers in the classrooms.
