CXC addresses suspension of syllabuses

By: Staff Reporter,

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts — IN response to widespread concern over the purported suspension of syllabuses for three subjects, the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) has issued a public statement.


    The CXC acknowledged the outcry from stakeholders across the region, prompted by the premature release of correspondence addressed to the Ministries of Education about the suspension.


    Complaints have been voiced from Jamaica in the west to Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana in the south, particularly regarding the shift in focus towards food security and technology development.


    The proposed suspension affects the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency (CAPE) level and includes subjects such as Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology, Green Engineering, and Agricultural Science (double award).


    “This situation is regrettable and understandably would have caused anxiety among our key stakeholder groups," the CXC stated. "To address the matter, CXC has scheduled a meeting with the Ministers of Education and will provide a full update to the public through a press release thereafter. CXC assures our valued stakeholders that the requisite actions will be taken in the best interest of all.”


    Education officials across the region are watching closely as these developments unfold, given the regional push for food security and technological advancement.
