Scrapping the Barbados Secondary Schools Entrance Examination (BSSEE) is still on the books, says Ministry of Education Santia Bradshaw.

During the virtual 73rd annual Erdiston Teachers Training College orientation ceremony recently, Bradshaw outlined upcoming education reforms, including replacing the BSSEE.

“Government intends to transform the education system in Barbados so we can equip our people to be global citizens. The planned reforms will not only be the removal of the method of transferring students from primary to secondary school, replacing the BSSEE, but it will also be about reforming the national curriculum to make it relevant to the emerging technological and global trends and transformational needs of this country.

“We will also be looking at the structure of our secondary schools and the process of transforming schools into specialist institutions, which has already begun,” she said. (CA)
