Former MP lashes Barbados’ Education System
No one should feel bad at failing a subject since they tried, but the teacher should be shamed – this stern assessment by a one-time Trade Unionist and now Barbadian envoy to Caricom, Robert “Bobby” Morris.
The former Parliamentarian is of the view that a fully structured region can map out their vacancies in respective territories and list them for all nationals to apply as seen fit using current technology. Citing a current boom in construction, Morris says that carpenters and masons make as much as 70-thousand per year but they must be qualified and if anyone does not succeed in a certified topic then, in his view the blame falls squarely at the educator involved;-
In 1994, Robert “Bobby” Morris was one of five MP’s who was guided by their conscience in voting against their own party and siding with the Opposition of the day which eventually led to a change in Government by September that year – Mr Morris thereafter stayed away from elective politics, but continued to advise the now once-again ruling Democratic Labour Party administration.
