Kamla: A Backward Step
Posted by: Susan Einhorn
The decision to discontinue the laptop programme is a retrograde step by the Government, says Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

Under the People’s Partnership government led by Persad-Bissessar, every pupil entering secondary school was given a laptop which they were allowed to take home.
Education Minister Anthony Garcia said yesterday that as of September 2016 secondary school pupils will no longer receive personal laptops.

“The one laptop per child meant the child had many hours of access to computer time and also the child’s family, when they took it home, would also have the benefit of access to the computer.
