Move To Halt Teacher Exodus

Saturday, September 04, 2004

Barbados and its Caricom neighbours have forged a pact with rich Commonwealth nations to limit the exodus of highly trained teachers to greener pastures.
Barbados has seen about 100 teachers leave its shores for classrooms in New York and Louisville, Kentucky, in the past three years, while Jamaica has lost about 700 teachers to the United States and Britain.
Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana have also been hard hit by recruiting efforts by New York City. In a deal brokered by the Commonwealth Secretariat in London both rich and developing states have agreed to take steps that would, in effect, bring order to the often-chaotic teacher recruiting process. The Ministries of Education in the English-speaking Caribbean countries should no longer be faced with the problem of too few teachers for their classrooms, especially at the start of the school year.
