Lashley: Scholarship rule not relevant
INSTEAD OF bonding scholarship winners to ensure their return to Barbados, the Government should be looking to take advantage of any remittances they send back when they become professionals.
That opinion was expressed by Minister of Sport, Youth and Culture, Stephen Lashley at the weekly Democratic Labour Party (DLP) lunchtime lecture at its headquarters at the George Street Auditorium last Friday. His topic was 50 Years Of Independence: The Barbados Story.
Lashley, who noted free education was one of “the biggest things that happened in Barbados”, said education was and continued to be a huge investment in the human development of the country.
And, he said, now was the time for the country to reap the rewards of that investment. (HLE)
