More ‘Sirs’ needed – CTA Pres

CTA President Neil Bynoe

At a media briefing in early January at the Education Ministry head office, St Vincent Street, Education Minister Anthony Garcia said the ministry was concerned with the large number of books and the physical effects on children with heavy schoolbags.

He suggested there seemed to be an “overemphasis on the use of texts rather than actual teaching”.

The ministry is also seeking to minimise the number of books children are “forced to carry on a daily basis”.
