James Michel Government Total Failure in Education- Back Fire!
It is a dangerous thing for a country to place at the leadership a position a person who has very little understanding of Education. When a people do this, they risk the future of a generation of children. When a People do this, they fail their children and they fail to live up to the promises of a better tomorrow for the next generation.
Seychelles Spends 3% of GDP SCR. 480 Million
As Mcsuzy Mondon, Minister of Education, makes these boring speeches to our children and SBC airs them without ever questioning her, People of Seychelles beware, Mcsuzy Mondon is fooling James Michel every step of the way, to guarantee her comfortable job and big fat salary which will go to SCR. 63,000.00 with car, driver and VIP perks. Yet our children are failing.
The IGCSE scores in Seychelles Public schools is dismal and a humiliation that the SBC conspires with the Ministry of Education to fool the Public and perhaps fool Mr. Michel himself. Seychelles consistently averages 32% success rate for students that take this aptitude test each year and achieve at least only one “C” grade in one subject. The SBC and Ministry of Education usually announce a Pass percentage, which can mean 50% or worse then an “F” grade (failure), “G”. Who in the world claps their hands for a “F”? Only PL. 32% rate for one single subject in IGCSE, amazing when you consider that SCR. 480 Million is spent on the Ministry of Education per year. This means, the money is being wasted, squandered and the effort to educate our children has back fired under James Michel Administration. The buck stops on your desk Mr. Michel, because this Minister like others, has fooled you like there is no tomorrow. Mcsuzy Mondon is a teacher, with a Masters degree. Send her back into the class room to do what she can do best for Seychelles: Teach! Take her off the soft road of fat cats, that does not help our country at a critical time. Education needs serious players, who are willing to burn the midnight candle to sort out the mess Seychelles is in. It can be done.
Private Schools In Seychelles Exceed UK Standards
To show you Mr. Michel that Seychelles can excel under a different administration then yours, just look at the private schools in Seychelles that are doing an excellent job with Seychellois students, who are not different then the students in Public School over funded and mal administered by your government.
The Private Schools are registering 96 % success for “c” grade or better in Seychelles for the IGCSE examinations with much less budget per pupil. The UK national average is merely 76%. This means there is no disadvantage to being in Seychelles to learn. The disadvantage is being in a school administered by your party Mr. President. There are numerous issues that are not working well, due to your government’s mal administration of Education. Your PL educational dossier is backing firing on the children of Seychelles. You are failing a generation.
High Salaries For Politicians Low Pay For Teachers
Under your government Mr. Michel, the salaries for politicians are outrageously high for a micro state. By June, a minister will get SCR. 63,000.00 and an MNA will get SCR. 30,000.00 and pensioned politicians will get about the same. This is made. Yet teachers are paid a fraction of these huge pay cuts.
If teachers are not paid well, you will not get good teachers, simple. If you want to stop failing teachers Mr. Michel, cut the salaries for politicians that just say Yes to you, and increase salaries for teachers, by 35% in 2014, and 35% in 2015.
Not Every Child Will Be A Rocket Scientist Mr. Michel
We know not every child will be a rocket scientist. That is ok. But every child must have a chance to be the best they can be given the circumstances of their family life, their environment, and their ability. That means for many children Mr. Michel, you will need an army of social workers and probations officers, to monitor in a systematic manner, the progress of each child at school and at home. It is not enough to ask parents to come to PTA when parents themselves are on drugs, or in jail or facing court charges to end up in jail. Our people today need the help of social workers probation officers to relearn how to cope with a ever mre complicated life for most people.
We may live around coconut trees and the ocean but Seychelles under your term of office has become a very complicated place to live and our people many, perhaps most, do not have the life skills necessary to successfully cope with such a complicated life, much of which you are responsible for.
Wake up from the nice polite Ministers who are fooling you, hold them accountable. If Mcsuzy Mondon cannot bring up the scores and percentage of tests to 70% ask her to resign, and same goes for her replacement.
Sure they will have every excuse in the book, but if Ministers are tasked with giving you excuses and not solutions, guess what Mr. Michel: they will give you excuses. Seychelles will Back Fire!
