Education time-line

February 12, 2008

Education Minister Randy Horton explained the time-line for restructuring his Ministry following the recommendations made in the Hopkins report.

June 2008 — pilot curriculum tests, with standard-setting to take place during the summer;

June 2009 — first administration of curriculum tests, with results made available to the public;

June 2010 — first determination of schools’ status and the rewards programme;

June 2011 — implementation of a “comprehensive accountability programme” with annual reporting to the public.

Judging by this time-line, we could end up failing another 3 years of young bright Bermudians before anyone is held accountable?!
