The Government’s investment in getting adult candidates to succeed at secondary education examinations is high, compared to the returns, Chief Education Officer Lou-Anne Gilchrist said yesterday.{{more}}

Every year, large numbers of persons register to sit CSEC as private candidates but many do not attend classes after signing up for the exams, the education official said.

But Government money pays for invigilators, the use of schools as exam centres, as well as for the use of educational facilities for classes, and the wear and tear of furniture.

Gilchrist called on adults enrolled for these classes to attend the classes, study and show up for exams to achieve the grades necessary to upgrade themselves academically and contribute to their families and the development of the nation.

Gilchrist said she would therefore like private providers of evening classes for secondary education examinations to inform the Ministry of Education as to who they are, their various qualifications and where they hold their classes. (BK)
