Minister of Education, National Reconciliation and Information St. Clair Prince has said that a revolution has indeed taken place in education in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Minister Prince was speaking last week at a ceremony where the Taiwanese Ambassador, His Excellency Calvin Ho, on behalf of his government and people, handed over scholarships to the tune of US$ 200,000 to 286 students of primary, secondary and post secondary institutions here.
Minister Prince said that “we have a change of mindset and a change in paradime entirely when it comes to education in SVG.”
The Education Minister added that people talk about education more than years gone by and that people go to school with a particular aim in mind. “That’s a revolution” he said, adding that some can also refer to it as an evolution.
