Education, Science & Technology Minister Jerome Fitzgerald joins us to talk about the expected impact of budget cuts on education, and specifically on the College of The Bahamas. We also talk about other challenges in education. And Mr. Fitzgerald gives an interesting response to our question about whether cabinet ministers – especially the Education Minister – should be mandated to send their children to public schools.
Plus, we discuss the importance of professional development and continuing education programs for educators. Guests Dr. Jill Farrell, Assistant Dean of Education at Barry University, and Stephen McPhee, Secretary General with the Bahamas Union of Teachers.
