Humane act by ministry

THE EDITOR: I have noticed that the Ministry of Education has chosen to adopt a humane approach and will allow the 11-year-old student from Guyana to write the SEA Exam.

According to newspaper reports, this tolerant decision will also benefit a few other students, who are non-nationals and are not in possession of the required student permit from the Ministry of National Security. This decision will also afford the parents additional time to apply for the student permit.

With the SEA Exam about three weeks away, the sympathetic act by the ministry to intervene quickly and spare this child, his parents and siblings of emotional distress is commendable.

This sensible and understanding act is very timely to restore some credibility and shows that TT is not anti-Caricom, considering its recent diplomatic blunder at the OAS on the Dominica issue.

The ministry has demonstrated TT is still a caring nation. It means well for Caricom integration and is in keeping with the spirit of the Treaty of Chaguaramas.
