WTD2012_final_web_ENG (212x300).jpg(CNS): The education minister has said there is still much to be done in Cayman if the country is to achieve an education system among the best in the world. In a message to mark World Teachers’ Day on Friday, he said this year’s theme, “Take a Stand for Teachers”, encourages adequate training, professional development, and protection for teachers’ rights, which “fits well within the strategic work undertaken by my ministry over the pastfew years.”  Rolston Anglin said the education system prepared nation builders — "global innovators and lifelong learners and achievers, strong individuals and future leaders” — capable of making the Cayman Islands even better.

“Skilled, passionate teachers, who can lead, care and inspire our children to strive for and achieve success, are an important key to achieving this goal,” Anglin stated.

He said the standards achieved by students were improving and the ministry was introducing “solutions to address critical needs” in the local system. “Our teachers’ involvement in and implementation of these initiatives are one of the most important factors in their success.”
