  3. Wanna know a neat trick to find out the the top performing CAPE schools for any year? Just look at the GSAT scores that came out 6 years prior. Then find out where the top 10,000 students were sent to high school.

    This whole ranking system that they put out every year is ridiculous. Everyone knows that we have an educational caste system. The Top Schools have their Pat Students associations scout the best teachers from the Teachers Colleges to teach for them. They then divide up their classes into 18 students or smaller during actual classes (versus actual homeroom size). Combine that with decades old culture of institutional excellence and you can see why the top schools stay the top.

    Parents are always going to send their children to the top schools creating a vicious cycle – the good primary students always go to the good secondary schools, and the bad primary students go to the bad secondary schools.

    If we want to do something other than ogle at a copy-and-paste of the previous years CAPE results every for CAPE, then stop the Past Students associations from snatching the top teachers, and use those teachers in new style remedial schools that spend a year helping lagging students at both the primary and secondary level. GSAT and CAPE failures are not inevitable. They can be fixed.

    • Um .. actually the average class size at Immaculate is 35 students.

      • Isn’t that usually split in 2? That is my understanding hearing from former Immaculate ladies. That is, before smaller classes as a result of CAPE specialization

        • Even though ghs isnt in the top five..our avg class size is no not really

    • Scout the best teachers? Where u get up info from?? Have you not heard of the crisis new teachers are having in securing a job? Old students associations have very little, if anything at all, to do with the success of the students. There are a plethora of reasons for success and failure that are beyond our (teachers’) control. Most times it’s just the fact that you can’t take the mud out the pig.

      • Calm down. Take a deep breath. We’re all friends here. We all know that our government would rather spend money on tablets (LOL!) than on hiring teachers. We all have the dead end jobs where we see legions of MICO graduates slaving away at doo-doo jobs. But none of these factors change the fact that teachers share responsibility for the success and failure of students. If you did not, then we could all just use tablets and cell phones instead.

        Nevertheless, the impact of teachers is being diminished by the breakdown of our communities and society as result of economic breakdown and loose (non)morals. But none of changes what I have been seeing going on regarding friends of mine being scouted, straight from school to get some money working at a high school. It just is.
