Until the minister and Ministry of Education recognise that the society as we know it is rapidly changing, that the family structure and dynamics as we know them are also changing, they will never recognise the need to change our archaic education system. Gone are the days where the “big stick” tactics worked. The population of T&T has outgrown its...

Now that the world’s greatest street party is over, we must heed the perennial call of former prime minister George Michael Chambers: “The fete is over… back to work”.

Carnival fetes averaging $1,000 price of admission. Calypso tents had poor attendance. Why? Because patrons has been robbed walking to their car and their cars being broken into.

Children are being told to mash up the place. Nice eh?
