Problem starts at home
February 7, 2008 | The Caribbean Camera | editorial by Raynier Maharaj.

Any effort to address the failure rate of black students will fail if it does not take the specific home environment into consideration. That’s the key. Educational intervention has to be designed to replace what is lacking at home to be successful.
Remember this: if 40 percent of black students are dropping out of the school system, this means 60 percent are finishing school in the exact same system. Not just that, but children of other minority backgrounds are exceling in same school system where the curriculum also does not address their specific ethnic or cultural needs.
Look, we cannot be afraid to say where real problem is, for that is the only way it can be addressed.
