National Grade Six Assessment

As over fifteen thousand of the nation's pupils prepare to write the National Grade Six Assessment, it is fitting that we should address some of the related concerns surrounding the assessment and its perceived or real implications vis-à-vis education in Guyana in general. It is my opinion that many of our children writing this assessment are placed under an inordinate amount of pressure - I have had first-hand exposure to this on numerous occasions.

This phenomenon is rooted in various historical elements of our country's education system. It would have emerged to a large extent from a pre-existing belief pattern that one's only chance of "doing well' in life, depended on that pupil earning one of the highly coveted, very limited places at the more "elite” secondary institutions.
