Minister of Education and Technical and Vocational Training, the Hon. Glenys Hanna Martin gave an update on her ministry’s efforts to combat learning loss.

“We have identified, appointed or contracted a project officer who is a former distinguished educator, Bahamian, who will marshal the entire process. This next step is that we will train teachers who will assist in rolling out the testing and we’re hoping we can do it simultaneously not one, one, one but we can test across the board in a short period of time. And once we’re able to measure what is happening in each instance there will be programs designed to help accelerate the learning loss. This is a peculiar type of loss, its not normal loss and its something to do with the black out that happened in the pandemic.”

Hanna Martin was speaking at the weekly press briefing at the Office of the Prime Minister.
