An Elitist 11+

Submitted by William Skinner

John Cumberbatch, the late president of the Barbados Union of Teachers, often described the Common Examination as elitist. He was convinced that once it remained the gold standard of excellence, the system would eventually be the main cause for several societal problems. It was a position he took before the mid-seventies, when he was leader of the BUT. Forty years later, his predictions have come to pass and we are still refusing to accept that he and others who supported this view were correct.

What is most unfortunate is that many of those teachers who were exposed to John’s views, embraced them but we now find them four decades later, in powerful positions, denouncing his positions and shamelessly defending the status quo. These former “Comrades” have sold their souls on the altar of political expediency and one often wonders, if they have collectively agreed to hold fast to the mantra: “if you can’t beat them join them”. They are to be found in both government and opposition. The classical case of pigs now walking on their hind legs and behaving like the masters, in Animal Farm.

Those voices crying in the wilderness for a radical reform of the education system, are to be commended but once parents believe that their children, can enter Harrison or Queens College, the task to change the system becomes more difficult. If many of those parents knew that some children enter the examination room, barely having the ability to recognize their names, they would perhaps be more supportive.

Any country that deliberately throws hundreds of its children in a socio-economic river while gleefully celebrating the achievements of a few, is certainly guilty of a form of societal genocide. The current rise in crime and the escalating disregard for life or limb by some of our youth, are certain signs of the full growth of seeds that were planted at least four decades ago. Our social scientists, have bluntly refused to utilize their knowledge to show or explain how the education system, is fertile breeding ground, for much of the deviancy that is now permeating the society.

Some moderators who chased callers off their programs, when they tried to explain that the education system was a great contributor, to many of our problems, are heard these days crying crocodile tears because they are facing the frightening reality, that if we refuse to rescue our youth from the path of drugs and crime, they would be no longer safe in their comfortable heights and terraces. It means that their desire to now embrace what they formally dismissed as “fringe elements”, is perhaps guided by ulterior motives.

Any form of elitism breeds disaffection and is immediately followed by hopelessness. We cannot restructure the economy without education reform. It is impossible to produce a 2017 model car on a 1950 production line. Our people remain our most precious resource, and that resource must be carefully nurtured for national development. It is not too late but time is running out.

    i am not blaming anybody.

    I am making a factual statement.

    Country person here.

    if you take the cream off the top of the milk then you are left with skimmed milk.

    Generations of Barbados scholars and exhibitioners have left us. We have been left with skimmed milk. And we expect to build a fat rich society with skimmed milk?

    I don’t think that we have a single Barbados scholar or exhibitioner in Cabinet, or in Parliament, or as a head of any government department, or as a permanent secretary, or as the head of any tertiary institution, or as the head of any hospital, or sitting on the governing body of any nursery, primary, or secondary school, of sitting as a judge or as a police commissioner, or as head of the prison service, or as governor general

    Please somebody correct me if I am wrong.

    Imagine a Barbados where Barbados scholars or exhibitioners sat in Cabinet, and in Parliament, and as a head of all government departments, and as a permanent secretaries, and as the head of all tertiary institutions, and as the head of all hospitals, and sitting on the governing bodies of all nursery, primary, and secondary schools, sitting as judges and as police commissioners, and as head of the prison service, and as governor general.

  • While it is true that many scholars do not return or enter politics because of what they consider to be inferior persons in charge, there is also some reluctance to be beholden to the dominant black upper middle class that has emerged since independence.
    Those born on the wrong side of the tracks would have experienced rampant classism and therefore opt for the anonymity that other countries offer. They seriously believe that to return to Bim , to confront the classism from within their own people coupled with the racism from the traditional white sector, is too much of a challenge and a waste of their time and the education that the taxpayers underwrote from primary to University level.
    Another point that we should not over look, is that some of the island scholars of late are the offspring of at least one parent who was also an island scholar and they would have grown up in very solid intellectual upper middle class homes, so they would have been a different class from their parents who had won a Barbados scholarship while they were relatively poor.
    We should note that relatively speaking a considerable number of whites and other minorities have also been scholars but we do not expect them to enter politics or the public service because they do not find such activity attractive or necessary to their social and economic well being.
    It is also interesting to note that there is now a notable increase in private primary schools and the fees will automatically ensure that most of the children will be from high income homes. Perhaps if our social scientists were alert or less selfish , they may be able to connect the dots. In the most recent Sunday Sun, I read where the roll of the Metropolitan High School has dropped from a high of over 800 to no more than 30 students. While practically all of the Black owned high schools are basically out of business, we should pay very close attention to the ownership of all the new private schools that are emerging.
    Sooner or later, we are going to have to confront several issues that we have swept under the carpet.
    No amount of useless political nit picking is going to solve any of the problems we now have to confront.

    For such a tiny island, destructive classism is too much of a deciding factor in identifying people, not even the racist US has that much classism..

    Of course scholars who possess a higher level of knowledge, once exposed to the international arena….than the average person on the street, will see the constant decades old classism and racism practiced by dumb people and enabled by even dumber governments, that can be attributed to condensed ignorance and backwardness of island people…… as counterproductive to any future progress and development….no one wants to live like that in a constant pit of stupidity and stagnation.

    Look how well it’s working out now after being practiced for decades on the island ..everyone seems to be an idiot, corrupt and criminals…..because of and despite the fantasy of classism.

    And just thinking of interacting with a bunch of semiliterate racist bajan whites and others in the minority population, who control black government ministers and politicians with bribery and corruption and who, given their decades of criminal activities against the majority population on the island…….could only be described as repulsive to any scholar.

    Previous black scholars made that mistake of returning to work for little racist companies like the then BS&T….. in the 70s and 80s and regretted it for the balance of their lives.

    No one would want to be associated with those particular fools to become tainted and stagnant.

    You hit the nail on the head, past all of the ‘should scholars return’ talk.

    With all of the evident corruption and ‘know a man’ way in Bim, who in their right mind with a degree from MIT, McGill, Oxford, Cambridge or London, is going to come back here to work for some JA or as a consultant dealing with JA’s? When with degrees from those places they can get offers of $$$$ overseas?

    Those days are done. The ones who came back before, even those who studied abroad and were not Bdos scholars, who will have opportunities abroad, will have learnt their lesson and twenty / thirty years ago was a different time.

    Things have become worse while people have become more street smart, especially the youth.

    You can wish all you want, but we now will see a brain drain en masse.

    Anyone with an overseas degree will not come back.

    The conversation needs to be ‘how can we stop the brain drain’ and the answer must begin with ‘we need to stop corruption first’.

    Sadly, I do not see that happening. Which is why I have already said in other posts on this blog, to the young people, to get qualified and get out.

    Why should a bright young person with potential stop here to be subject to the whims and fancy of a corrupt lot?

    Like it or lump it, that is the way it is.

    Your analysis is largely correct. However you must have noted in thinking about the matter, that the whole focus of these ‘scholars’ is about their own selfish desires and convenience.
    This is what Bushie calls albino-centric thinking, and it is THE root cause of our (and this current world’s) demise.

    If the talented, bright, blessed (with state funding) scholars are ONLY thinking about their own interests and well being, …pray tell us what the dim, slow, intellectually-challenged, and exploited (with the taxes to fund these scholars) average BBBB is supposed to do…?

    Not sell Ganja where he can make thousands instead of waiting on welfare?
    Not run a ZR in a manner that best suits HIS objectives..?
    Not litter, piss all over the place, look unkempt and behave waxy?
    Not rob tourists whenever it suits his fancy?

    Societies that do well produce citizens that feel a COMMITMENT to contribute to their family, friends, community, country …. and world. They do this by inculcating a culture with a COMMUNITY CENTRIC focus.
    This way, not only Scholars, but even the lowest strata of citizens are driven to do what they can ‘for the country’.

    This is a MOST CRITICAL role of any education system….. a role that is COMPLETELY missing in Barbados – with the consequences that we are seeing.

    Or are you alleging a chicken and egg scenario, which came first?

    FYI, there have been such scholars who returned and sacrificed of their time and lives. Some research is needed, but they were there. Not quite recognized for their contributions. And the corruption and decadence still prevailed despite their efforts.

    Hence why the young ones know better.

    You all can talk about the altruistic motivations, but what sense does that make in a mire of despotism?

    This is not a good example. The education system has moved passed the Metropolitan School model i.e. the Black owners like Cox, Prescod and the lot have not been innovative enough to tweak the business model. In the past they existed based on the subsidy from the MoE anyway.

    WW, casting the dispersion that all Bajan whites are semi literate is ridiculous. Most of the Scholarships in my era of the mid 70s were won by whites and those that are very close to white ie most foreigners would not know the difference. The darker gents mostly came from professional homes although some were from very poor origins eg dad sold oranges on the wharf.
    AS I have stated before the truth on bribery is that it was and is EXTORTION. “U want this Govt contract then place 10%commission in my/ our Cayman AcctS” So even I lay off 123 workers or I play ball. Obviously I want to retain my workers for continuity, cashflow etc how much choice do I have???? No matter what the morals/ ethics are what should I tell my workers and their families approx 5-600 human lives plus those they do business with like shops?

    BS&T was always a large unwieldly organisation that did employ some whites who were well connected / protected and far from swift. I was amazed when some Bajans did not want it sold to a Trini Corp with a senior executive who was obviously Afro Trini. Who could afford to buy it in Bim? Why not take the cash from Trin and redeploy in developing smaller better managed Corps for the future? Who stopped Bajans from buying shares on the market for donkeys years?

    The greatest draw of all Boss…
    To come and clean up the shiite that is stinking up THEIR family, friends, communities and country.

    If our brightest and best – who we nurtured, and in whom we invested scarce resources – are unwilling (or God forbid) unable, to deal with corruption in high places, what can you HONESTLY expect from the current union leaders – for example..?….or from the pissy press (who all seem to be consumed in sex scandals with their editors) … or the third rate clergy…
    … or even stinking Bushie (who barely passed the 11+…)?

    Bushie respects Caswell for HIS selfless commitment to justice and truth.
    BUT Caswell did not benefit from elaborate resources, exposure and training that comes with scholarships….and would be lost among the stinking lawyers of Barbados.
    This is why Caswell does not have the SELF CONFIDENCE to fully exploit the VALUABLE talents that he possess. For lack of this TECHNICAL and SOCIAL self-confidence, WE are unable to benefit from his invaluable ethical, moral and social excellence.

    Take a fella like Georgie Porgie.
    He has the needed self-confidence and attitude to make a contribution, but he is to damn arrogant.
    Jeff has the intellect, social and ethical grounding, and the self-confidence, but has been ethically and spiritually compromised by his legal groundings.
    Walter is a strong candidate, but, like his pal David Thompson, sees himself as too much as a needed saviour rather than a willing SERVANT of the people…. and easily falls into albino-centric traps…

    To whom much is given, much is expected.
    This saying is more applicable to this situation than anywhere else…

Among the scholars, Bushie hazards that probably ‘one-in-a-hundred’ comes close…. among the ordinary population, the figure is more like ‘one-in-a-hundred-thousand’ …. NONE of those in our current parliament is that ‘one’…

    What is even WORSE now, is that in more recent times, the situation has deteriorated to the point where EVEN those who may be blessed with the needed human and technical qualities will FAIL to bring the needed change – UNLESS they are FULLY equipped to counter the SERIOUS DARK SPIRITUAL forces that have come on stream in our world….

    I had the best secondary school education that Barbados could offer at HC in the late 60s & early 70s. I understand that many of my schoolmates are nostalgic about that time in their lives, but it would be a grave mistake to characterize it as a good education. It basically imitated the English Eton tradition and taught the following:
    * a sense of moral superiority because we were assumed by the society around us to be tomorrow’s leaders,
    * a reverence for tradition because we were at the top of that traditional hierarchy,
    * how to imbibe information quickly and regurgitate it on an exam paper because your entire 7 years of learning in any subject had to be expressed in a single 3 hour A level Cambridge exam.

    The first two lessons were worse than useless. The third I found of great practical value in passing university engineering exams by cramming for 48 hours having spent all the rest of the term chasing young women and playing the fool, but in actual life it has been of very limited utility.

    We will not be able to create the education system that Barbados needs by casting our eyes back nostalgically to the past.

This at a time where several other offshore schools are now forced to employ locals to teach.

    Why is it that WUB (see faculty and staff webpage) have few well qualified teachers listed on their site but yet they list 7 chefs and 7 security guards.

    Never really associated you with such devotedly committed love of worship at the Mons Veneris!

    In ‘true’ Judeo-Christian mythological thought a “Cunt” with the crowning glory of a hidden clitoris of pure pleasure was the last thing the anthropomorphic Creator made before going to sleep on the 7th day and, like His son RIP Van Winkle, woke up a few days later to find ‘He’ made a rather irreversibly serious mistake to lead man into eternal damnation.

    After your imaginatively fertile description above of a true “cunt” it has to be supremely futile for the likes of Bushie and his gang of misogynists to ever conceive that the female human being is inferior and subservient to the male.

    There is no species in the Solar Deity’s ‘creatively’ evolutionary process where the male is ‘superior’ to the female. Not even among flora.

    “200,000 People Downloaded Her App Within Two Weeks, and Forbes Magazine is Calling Her “The Next Steve Jobs”

    Angel Richer, founder of the Credit Stack app and The Wealthy Life
    Angel Rich, from Washington, DC, has developed a very innovative app called Credit Stacker that teaches students about personal finance, credit management, and entrepreneurship in a fun and engaging way. The app is so popular that 200,000 people downloaded it to their smart phones and tablets within just two weeks of it’s launch. Even more, Forbes has named her “The Next Steve Jobs”.

    Remarkably, the app has been named the “best financial literacy product in the country” by the Office of Michelle Obama, the “best learning game in the country” by the Department of Education, and the “best solution in the world for reducing poverty” by JP Morgan Chase. It has won first place in several business competitions including the Industrial Bank Small Business Regional Competition and the Black Enterprise Elevator Pitch Competition. All in all, Angel has won more than $50,000 in business grants.

    Her background

    Angel was raised in Washington, DC, and graduated from Hampton University. She also studied at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing, China.

    After winning Prudential’s annual National Case competition for her marketing plan to reach millennials, she worked briefly as a global market research analyst for Prudential, where she conducted over 70 financial behavior modification studies.

    She says that during her time there, she helped the company generate more than $6 billion in revenue. She resigned, however in 2013, to start her own company, The Wealth Factory.”
