    Some are only interested in their own nationality.  Change the way teachers are selected and you will see the difference.

    Since any shared agenda must include human rights compliance, can the minister enquire when the illegal refsual to provide free public education to all resident children will be ended?

      One way of complying might be to send those children away. Have you considered that option?

        Yes, that would lead tocollapse of the economy, so not really an option.

      you can only ask for free schooling if you pay taxes, and that is part of the price of us expats being here. And be grateful you have to pay for it, because the standard I am seeing coming out of the local schools (with notable exceptions of course) are generally not good and bode badly for Caymans future. Lots more Macs down the raod, Lord help us.

        Poor selection of teachers.   Some are only interested in their own nationality.  Change the way teachers are selected and you will see the difference.  If there isn't an good foundation there will be a poor structure going forward.

          But at the moment the children at public schools are Caymanians, because other children are illegally excluded.  So what are you talking about?

        No, these children have a right of free primary and secondary education consistent with the UK's obligations under the ECHR.  Tax does not come into it.

      Ask when Immigration is going to start doing its job of blocking the entrance of children from poor countries being allowed into the island for the purpose of attending schools.  It has to stop.  This is the reason we are having so many behaviour  problems at the schools.  The cost is  surmounting and the indigenous few have to take the burden.

      The children are not feed at home and when they arrive at school they capture other children snacks and lunches.  These are the incidents that need to be highlighted, told and the Ministry of Education investigate.

      We do not need an influx of poverty stricken children from other parts of the world to take care of.  Too many are being brought in under the fence, and they are not their own children.
