Acting Education Minister, Karl Samuda, is decrying an inequity in opportunities for children in the school system. 

He was addressing the Jamaica Teachers’ Association 55th Annual General Conference at the Hilton Rose Hall Resort and Spa in St James.

He addressed concerns about the placement of students, who sat the Primary Exit Profile, PEP.

Minister Samuda says the inequality that exists in the education system is harmful. 

He also called on the JTA to give their stamp of approval for the new primary school-leaving the exam. 

He says PEP will illuminate the levels of inequality that is present in the school system.
