June 2020 CAPE and CXC Results Raise Concern Across The Region

By Devonne Cornelius

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The July 2020 CXC results are sparking much public debate and concern across the region with parents, teachers, students, and Caribbean Education officials.

The Barbados Education Minister, Hon. Sanita Bradshaw said she refuses to turn a blind eye or deaf ear to the outcry of teachers, parents, and most importantly students over their July 2020 CSEC and Cape Results. The minister is calling on CXC to conduct an urgent investigation.

Trinidad and Tobago’s Minister of Education, Dr. Nyan Gadsby-Dolly has assured that her ministry will take all required steps to ensure that the issue is adequately addressed; noting that the issue is causing distress, especially for the students involved who are already stressed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The most liked comment, on a recently launched petition to open an investigation into the results, which is nearing more than one-thousand signatures, stated “as a huge regional educational institution, I find it very irresponsible that you have caused this upon all of these students who have worked hard countless hours studying and doing many past papers over and over again. Please fix this immediately, and we will be willing to work with you”.

Education officials in St. Kitts and Nevis will host a press conference on Monday, September 28, 2020, to update citizens and residents of the federation about the July 2020 CXC results.
