Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw Makes Shocking Revelation

There has always been consensus by the BU family that at the root of our problems is an irrelevant and dysfunctional education system.  It was therefore important to listen  to Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw as she and her team appeared before the 2019 House Appropriation Debate – Standing Finance Committee OWN the problems with a promise to reform the education system.

It was interesting to note Bradshaw’s assessment of the current education system if compared to her predecessor Ronald Jones. He offered no similar critiques during his lengthy tenure as minister of education. What a difference a general election makes!

A poignant moment came in the presentation when Minister Bradshaw stated that problems identified by the criterion test at 9 years old were not remediated before the child had to do the 11+. It there translated to young children condemned as failures by society. Some may suggest another poignant moment occurred when the Prime Minister asked Chief Education Officer what recommendation would she make to improve the leadership in the schools. Her response will floor you!

Watch Santia Bradshaw, Minister of Education, Technological and Vocational Training share the challenges and opportunities  faced by her ministry.

A must listen for all Barbadians!

    Sir Fuzzy ,

    YES. The CEE allocated the students to the secondary schools based on an objective, measurable criterion.

    You may want to resort to the brown paper bag criterion if you want to.

    THAT IS BULLSHIT FROM WHAT I HAVE OBSERVED UP HERE

    COULD YOU PLEASE KINDLY DEFINE “superior” medical care “overseas” ?

    RE A more important question is why do politicians have to go overseas for treatment of illnesses when the therapy is not cutting edge? The answers are a reflection of our much vaunted education system that politicians have been exhalting over the years.

    IT WOULD HAVE TO BE THAT THEY WANT PRIVACY NOT THE QUALITY OF MEDICAL CARE
    AFTER ALL THE TREATMENT PROTOCOLS AND REGIMENS ARE THE SAME BUT FAR MORE EXPENSIVE IN THE USA!

    I beg to differ. There is quality. We know what it is and when we experience it. it is stakeholder defined. But it is defined. We can meet it and pat our self on the back or fail to meet it and work very hard to meet in the future.

    As a point of reference in the stakeholder definition. The yardstick is planted. On reaching a review point; we have met it; surpassed it; or fallen behind. the yardstick.

    We have to see quality as every evolving. What was top notch in 1950s was not so in 1960s etc.. We are now in 2010s so the pursuit of it(quality) will be ongoing.

    “”The Relentless Pursuit of Perfection.” is the Lexus slogan, “the key word is “Pursuit”. perfection is stakeholder defined but the pursuit of it is the organisation’s decision. Therefore likewise “quality” is as u stated stakeholder defined, but the “pursuit” of it(education) in the Bajan context is a full time jobs we must be all willing to engage as Barbados has all to gain or lose.

  • The will of Col Henry Drax provided for the establishment in 1695 of a ‘Free School’ ostensibly for poor whites in Barbados.In 1819 this school was named for a former Governor of Barbados Viscount Combermere,a Welsh born soldier and diplomat born Stapleton Cotton.No wonder another Welsh born soldier and headmaster extraordinaire Major Cecil Noott of Harverford-West,Pembrokeshire saw to it that that School played a significant role in the life and times of his beloved Barbados,which the Major contended was his second home and birth place of his daughter Jacqueline.
    At the special assembly commemorating the 300th anniversary of the founding of the school,attended by the Major’s wife Kathleen and daughter Jacqueline,then Very Rev Dean Harold Crichlow,Dean of St Michael’s Cathedral and former Head Boy of the school suggested it would be a fitting tribute to the Drax family that the school be renamed to reflect the contribution made by the that family to what is now the oldest school in the entire Commonwealth and the first to offer secondary education to lower class blacks.

    the common entrance exam may need a bit of tweaking but it is a reasonable way to transition to sec school. prepare and you will pass. i did and i was a poor poor black boy. and lots of other poor poor black boys passed too.

    it is what happens at the particular schools that matters. not everyone is going to be academic and some pick up later in life whilst others fall away.

    what i believe is necessary are technical schools in addition to conventional sec schools. i mean trade schools including animal husbandry and agricultural practices not becos you are not good at academics but becos you want to learn a trade or are genuinely interested in technical subjects

    So let me explain the Central Purpose of that proposal.

    This is a heat map, (compliments of digitalmarketingschool.in which provides a signature of where your mouse, and mine, and those of other internet users produce when they use any website.

    It lets me know who clicked on what and which articles got the most read and linger etc. Or let me say that “IT USES YOUR MOUSE TO RAT YOU OUT”

    It is in the interest of the Honourable Blogmaster and Charles Jong, to SEE WHAT USERS ARE DOING for various reasons, the Blogmaster for the most part does this to optimize the site while Jong would be interested in user interests and use that to complexion their social messaging essays.

    I must say that I had three objectives

    (i) The first was to protect all of wunna from the trickery that these fellers does use to encroach on your Hardrives, SPYING THAT THE DLP & THE BLP subscribe to BECAUSE THEY HATE THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA and they hate BU even more.

    (ii) The second was a test to see if the Honourable Blogmaster was committed to protecting users

    (iii) And the third was to generate $$ for the BU platform because its model needs $$ to operate and what David of BU does needs to be paid while also making $$ meself on your subscriptions to the best VPN on the internet, IF WUNNA HAD SUBSCRIBED TO THE PLATFORM.

    So I have declared my full interests in such a solution for every one of you viewers.

    Note that I also responded to comments that one the tripartite iterations of the Honourable Blogmaster made and further, I have asked specific questions of the BU Collective, NONE OF WHICH WERE ANSWERED UP TO THIS POST.

    But I understand why and those of you who understand that the Original David of BU, is not all 3 of the BU BORG will comprehend what is going on.

    BU IS THE LAST BASTION OF FREE SPEECH ON THE LOCAL LANDSCAPE at 2018 and it is in their interest to secure their platform and to advocate that their users do the same

    —-W Deming via Sir Fuzzy

    The Common Entrance Examination is one of the cornerstones of class based privilege in Barbados. I am a product of that privilege, but I am a traitor to my class.

    It is no surprise that the system works so well to achieve that end because it was designed originally to perpetuate White supremacist ideology. The changes that have been made around the edges, to accommodate brown skins and more than a single gender, have not fundamentally altered the fact that the system was designed to perpetuate power imbalances of a status quo.

    The present system does allow for remedial teaching. That is the purpose of putting students in schools roughly according to similar achievement levels. There was a time when the then called second grade schools had lower 1st and upper 1st etc. And streams A,B and Cs at the then named first grade schools. The teachers were expected to take longer on the syllabi. Some pupils would take 7 years to “O” levels ; most 5 years.
    Teacher appraisals are a joke. A rigorous selection process and a probation period of two terms are more reliable.
    The trades area to which we want to relegate the slow learners require the same level of cognitive skills….communication and measurement.

    The food in the canteen was not bad or poisonous food, but good 7th Adventist fare. Aren’t the Adventist the longest living religious group in the United States, and likely in Barbados too. A low salt, low fat, low sugar diet is good for all of us.

    Sometimes politicians confuse their legitimate authority with power. The Ministry may well have the legitimate authority to put teachers on contract. Easy enough.

    But how can they make teachers stay in the system? In truth the Ministry has no power to compel teachers to stay. There is a worldwide shortage of English speaking teachers and principals. Our teachers can vote with their feet. Unless that is, Karen plans like Trump, to build “a big beautiful wall” around Barbados, a wall which would compel teachers and principals to stay in Barbados.

    Otherwise the teachers will leave, and in such circumstances the best ones will leave first.

    THE REST OF THE TIME WOULD BE LIKE DRINKING SOUP!

    Right on target there, Master Piece!

    Let all children have access to the Internet- both at school and extra-curriculum- and then you would see who is smart or who is forced-fed in order to shine academically because of their socio-economic polish called ‘special’ privileges.

    ICT can be the transformational instrument in the area of education and vocational training turning the dictatorial pedagogue into an unbiased facilitator.

    Such leveling of the educational playing-field through equal access to ICT resources would result in the socio-economic benefits which even those with disabilities would find ‘enviously appealing’.

    “it was designed originally to perpetuate White supremacist ideology.”
    I know how you love this ideology. Yet, isn’t it the private school system which was so designed and not the public? Wasn’t the idea that if your offspring could get into a school you considered OK, they attended. If not, there were the Presentations, Mapps, St.Winifreds, Convent, Codringtons etc etc which were there to serve those who could afford them.
    For 3 years, my opening bat partner was from St.Andrew, the only in his family to attend a school other than the Alleyne. One of the better bowlers was from St.Peter, playing against CP was a homecoming for him. These boys were from poor families. We (team) all knew those who were from less privileged backgrounds and they were afforded first grabs at the food, which included a certain amount in the cap “for later”.
    Clearly, if your family could afford good early primary education and possibly tutoring, you had an advantage come the CEE. But it still allowed those who had the academic abilities, without that privilege to compete and be successful. And many did.

    Not really. My mother started her final pregnancy in July 1958 and attended the clinic in Speightstown. The clinic was long located right next to Elmer’s supermarket, in the tall narrow 3 story building, near to where the bank and public library are now located. Nurse Marjorie Mayers worked at that clinic, and Nurse Holita Horton, both ladies (now departed) were old enough to be your mother. I too attended that clinic from the time I was at elementary school. I attended the dentist at that clinic as well. My brother, before migrating worked briefly from that clinic as a public health inspector. My brother was born in the 1940’s. You were at elementary school during the the early 60’s. That clinic housed the public health inspectorate, a dentist, at least two nurses that can I remember, at least one doctor, did prenatal care, immunizations, provided contraceptive services (the pill). I used to pick up the contraceptive pills for an older married cousin who had five children and opted not to have any more) elder care and the regular cuts and scrapes care while you were still a boy at elementary school. The Enmore clinic, opposite the QEH was in operation too during that time, probably was in operation long, long before you were born, and providing the same services as at Speightstown

    In July 1958, you were 6 years old.

    You created the polyclinic service in Barbados, just like how Columbus “discovered’ the “new” world.

    Neither you nor Columbus did as claimed.

Nurses M. Mayers and B. Payne were added to the staff in September as junior Public Health Nurses while Mr. E. Baird acted as sanitary officer from 15th February 1954.

    All those mentioned did wonderful work, especially excellent preventative health work in the huge catchment area of that clinic in the 1950’s, 60’s 70’s. The public health inspectors were always out in the communities, and when the nurses were not in the clinic they were out on the road, walking out their shoe leather with house to house visits, especially to homes of pregnant and lactating mothers and to homes in which young children lived.

    If poly means many. It was a polyclinic, although the people in the community referred to it simply as “the clinic”, as it provided multiple health services to the community.

    I must admit though, I took the excellent care for granted. The nurses from that cllnic came to my rural elementary school sometime before August 1962 and delivered the oral polio vaccine to all 135 or so of us. this vaccine only came into commercial use in 1961, so the Ministry of health and the medical staff at the clinic were on the ball. Did not waste any time in vaccinating all of us.

    “Supreme Court Rules Black People Are Not Citizens
    Image | Dred Scott Painting by Louis Schultze, 1998 Missouri Historical Society, St. Louis

    On March 6, 1857, in Dred Scott v. Sandford, the United States Supreme Court ruled that black people were not Americans citizens and could not sue in courts of law. The Court ruled against Dred Scott, an enslaved black man who tried to sue for his freedom.

    For years before this case began, Dred Scott was enslaved by Dr. John Emerson, a military physician who traveled and resided in several states and territories where slavery was illegal–always accompanied by Dred Scott. Dr. Emerson eventually took Mr. Scott back to Missouri, where slavery was legal. When Dr. Emerson died there in 1843, Mr. Scott was still enslaved.

    After Dr. Emerson’s death, Dred Scott and his wife, Harriet, sought freedom in the Missouri state courts. The Scotts argued that their prior residence in free territories had voided their enslavement. The Missouri Supreme Court ruled against the Scotts and authorized Dr. Emerson’s widow, Irene, to continue to own them. When Irene Emerson later gave her estate, including the Scotts, to her brother, John Sandford, Dred Scott brought suit in federal court.

    Written by Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dred Scott decision held that the Fifth Amendment did not allow the federal government to deprive a citizen of property, including enslaved people, without due process of law. This ruling kept the Scotts legally enslaved, invalidated the Missouri Compromise and re-opened the question of slavery’s expansion into the territories. The resulting legal uncertainty greatly increased sectional tensions between northern and southern states and pushed the nation forward on the path toward civil war.

    Unable to win liberty in the courts, Dred and Harriet Scott were freed by a subsequent owner a few months after the decision. Dred Scott died just months later of tuberculosis, while Harriet Scott lived until 1876.”

    I am not trying to put anybody down. I just feel the need to speak the truth. Especially when blowhards try to subvert the truth, and take credit for what was planned long before said blowhard was born, and which was rolled out before said blowhard’s first birthday.

    In 1953 When you were one year old the clinic at Speightstown was opened and started providing the same comprehensive health services to the people of the north as the clinics in other areas now provide. To wit: contraceptive education and products, well baby care, immunizations, care of sick children, treatment of veneral diseases, care for elders with chronic non-communicable diseases, dental care, dispensing of prescription medicines, public health inspections where the inspectors checked for mosquitoes etc. Nurse Marjorie Mayers was hired shortly after the opening. The late Lyle Worrell and the late Mr. Greaves of St. Lucy worked from that clinic as public health inspectors, as did my brother. When these people were working hard providing comprehensive health services to the people of St. Lucy, St. Peter, St. James and St. Andrew you were still a breast feeding baby. Tom Adams was at that time a 21 year old student in London. Erskine Sandiford was a 16 year old student of Coleridge and Parry, Bernard St. John was 21, Mia’s parents had not yet met.

    So to try to take credit for work that was going on while you were still an infant in fundamentally dishonest. Just as dishonest as the claim that Columbus “discovered” the new world, when in fact he came to the “Americas” and found tens of millions of people who had come here tens of thousands of years before him, and had created thousands of highly complex societies.

    Not only was the polyclinc template created when you and Tom Adams were still children, you a suckling baby. But the service had been rolled out in the north and was fully functioning, providing the comprehensive health services for more that twenty years before you gained your medical degree. I haven’t checked but I expect that “Enmore” was fully functioning too then, because it is unlikely that the service would be rolled out in the second city (Speightstown) before it was rolled out in the capital Bridgetown.

    If you have claimed credit that you do not deserve to your wife, to your children to friends to family, to the BU people it is time to apologise.

    If you want to tell lies. Wait until I am dead. And in my family we live to be 100+.

    I LOOK FORWARD TO THE RAPTURE
    I DONT LIKE TO CUSS BUT I HATE LIARS

    I HAVE TRUTHFULLY TOLD THE BLOG BALL BY BALL HOW THE CURRENT NHS IN BIM CAME INTO BEING, AND HOW THE DRS WANTED TO GET A NURSE AND RECEPTIONIST AT GOVERNMENT EXPENSE, AS TOM ADAMS OFFERED, BUT DID NOT WANT TO SERVE 24/7/365 AS THE DRS DO IN THE BRITISH HEALTH SERVICE, MUCH MALIGNED BY AMERICANS WHO HAVE PISS POOR HEALTH SERVICE, EVEN TO THOSE WHO HAVE VERY GOOD HEALTH INSURANCE

    I RESENT THE LIES OF A LYING OLD PIECE OF SCUM AS SIMPLE SIMON SHIT IS

    I HAVE NEVER DENIED THE HEALTH CENTERS SET UP BY BYER IN THE NORTH AND TOWN, OR IN SIX RDS , GALL HILL AND THE GLEBE BY PROFESSOR STANDARD

    I STUDIED THEBRITISH NHS AND EUROPEAN HEALTH SYSTEMS VIA UPDATE ( the Journal of THE Royal College of General Practitioners) AND ALSO THE STUDY OF THE AMERICAN JOKERS COMMISSIONED TO ADVISE THE GOVERNMENT THEN

    THE AMERICANS CAME AND ASKED THE LOCALS THEIR OPINIONS AND PREPARED A RIDICULOUS INADEQUATE REPORT.

    WHEN I GOT TIRED OF THE LOCAL DRS COVERT TELEPHONE CALLS AS THEY SOUGHT TO CLOSE RANKS AGAINST TOM ADAMS AND THE GOVERNMENT, I WROTE TO PM TOM ADAMS AND SENT HIM THE INFORMATION POSTED HERE ON BU IN JANUARY 2008

    TOM WAS INSISTENT TO HAVE A NHS LIKE THE UK NHS, AND NO DOUBT, IF HE HAD NOT DIED WHEN HE DID, WE WOULD HAVE DONE SO.

    MY INITIAL PROPOSALS TO MR ADAMS WAS FOR A SYSTEM THAT CATERED TO
    1- THE ELDERLY who I thought deserved free care because of their immense contribution to develping the nation and in sustaining the mores that we grew up with, and which Hal Austin praises effusively
    and
    2 THE CHILDREN. for obvious reasons

    Blood testing and the convenience of XRAYS for simple things would also be offered on site. (THE ST LUCIANS ARE DOING THIS AT THE POLYCLINIC IN THE NORTH AT GROS ISLET AT LEAST…….I cant speak for other areas there–only for what I saw in 2012)

    Clinics would be located at the apices of the triangular wedges as can be seen from studying the location of the highways on our map, to enhance the catchment area for each of the 7 zones I propose.I was here applying what I had been taught by KR RAO, who stressed the use of transportation to enable attendance of the folk in any catchment area

    Note that Warrens Health clinic is placed at the junction of Highways 2 and 2a. It is our best cited clinic though not by design but inadvertently by the DLP, THE ORIGINAL BUILDING AT WARRENS WAS TO BE A CREMATORIUM

    look at the map highway 2 goes all the way down to Belleplaine.

    Highway 2a goes down to Mile and a quarter. Between these two Highway is HIghway D

    Warrens ought to have been, but was placed by accident, to serve most of St Thomas, much of Eastern JAMES and sections of St Michael and it does.

    ALL OF THESE THINGS WERE POINTED OUT TO VIC JOHNSON AS I TOLD HIM WHERE POLYCLINICS SHOULD BE FOR EACH “WEDGE” OF THE ISLAND

    NOT TWO ON THE HIGHWAY 4 WEDGE AT THE GLEBE AND AT GALL HILL BUT ONE AT SALTERS ETC

    VIC JOHNSON LISTENED ATTENTIVELY AND HE BUGGED ME TO GO TO OBRIEN TROTMAN BECAUSE THE BLP WANTED TO KEEP THEIR PROMISE OF A NHS AS PROMISED IN 1976 BEFORE THE 12986 ELECTIONS

    THESE ARE TRUTHS THAT CAN NOT BE REFUTED BY ANY LYING SCUM

    I NOT BLOWING HARD OR BLOWING AT ALL

    THE BLP BY A NHS BASED ON A SERIES OF POLYCLINICS IMPROVED IN 1985 ON WHAT BYER AND STANDARD STARTED IN THE 30’S AND 50’S RESPECTIVELY

    I agree, that I misunderstand.
    Seems you are describing “supremacy ideology” in general, as in methods used by people to ensure they sustain their level of ‘class’ or privilege, and this is done by systems/methods which seek to ‘keep others out’. And they all fall under the ideological title of “white supremacy ideology”.
    Son #1 went through Gr 4-12 in a ‘gifted’ program, as rookie parents we had no idea how it worked, one of his teachers suggested it. The class was 90% Asian, and the Asians would buy a house in the area of what they deemed the ‘best gifted program school’ and then register all their children at that address, so they qualified for the school. It was known as Asian Supremacy, where they sought to keep others out, because classroom size was limited, and they ‘believed’ they were academically superior. I believe under your terminology, this tactic would simply fall under ‘white supremacy ideology’.
    This said, I can appreciate how the CEE is skewed to privilege, yet all have a shot. In private, they can keep you out for basically any reason, and your parents must have the financial resources in the first place.
    My Asian example shows parents can manipulate geographical zoning to suit their needs.
    The idea of a level playing field doesn’t exist?

    An apology is never required for telling the truth.

    i know Weston/St. Albans very well. My parents married at St. Alban’s long, long before GP’s parents ever met. My mother’s mother lived at Weston as did my aunt. I know the area like the palm of my hand. I don’t have to go asking anybody “Where Carew lived?” A two story wall house has been constructed on the west side of highway 1 at St. Alban’s not 100 feet away from where Carew lived.

    You tink I now come?

    All that I have said about the clinic at Speightstown is true and has been documented in the historical record. You will notice that GP can cuss me by he cannot deny that the clinic offered the COMPREHENSIVE services that I have listed above. I had a tooth exteacted at that clinic in the early 60’2 when GP was still wearing short pants.

    Wunna is a couple of ole has-beens trying to make out that wunna invented sliced bread, or like Columbus “discovered” the “new world” or created the polyclinic system in Barbados.

    Not true. Not true.

    I don’t know Hants, but he came here yesterday and documented that the clinic at Speightstown was opened on July 1, 1953. Truly I don’t remember July 1, 1953, but I do know that I and many, many people in the north benefited from comprehensive health services at that clinic when GP was still a child.

    Wunna tink i born yesterday, that wunna can come here and reinvent history?

    Tom Adams a middle class town boy, who went to England when he was still a teenager and who experienced the NHS system [rolled out between 1946 and 1948] for the first time, may not even have been aware that an HNS-like system in the form of clinics at Speightstown, and perhaps at Enmore as well had already been replicated in Barbados when Tom was but a lad. It is unlikely that the young Tom ever had the need to visit a public health clinic before he went to England while still a teenager.

    If wunna want to tell lies, and big up wunna selves, please to wait until i am dead, dead, dead.

    As long as I live I will tell the truth.

    And I don’t have to cuss nor put down anybody to tell the truth.

    I am glad to see that you have finally acknowledged that you, Tom and the BLP “IMPROVED IN 1985 ON WHAT BYER AND STANDARD STARTED IN THE 30’S AND 50’S RESPECTIVELY.”

    Note that you yourself did not say create, but “IMPROVED.” We can only improve something which already exists, which has already been created and maintained by Byer, Standard and the other people which I have mentioned by name.

    The health centers/polyclinics, whatever you want to call them were offering these services when Georgie Porgie was still a child “contraceptive education and products, well baby care, immunizations, care of sick children, treatment of venereal diseases, care for elders with chronic non-communicable diseases, dental care, dispensing of prescription medicines, public health inspections.”
