More GSAT scholarship awardees this year – Lead Stories – Jamaica Gleaner – Friday | July 13, 2012.

The list of scholarship winners published by the Ministry of Education in yesterday’s daily newspapers revealed that seven of the 25 government scholars are from primary schools, compared to only one out of 24 last year. In total 50 of the 96 students who received scholarships are from public institutions which represents an increase compared with 21 of 65 students last year.According to Education Minister Ronald Thwaites, the result reflects a diversion from what has been the norm where a specific group of schools dominated the list. He said the mixture among the schools was welcomed by the Ministry of Education. “Quality education is to be found across the system and this is an indication of it,” Thwaites said. He said there has been an improvement at some schools as a result of their effort to improve the standards of the students. “There has been better preparation, all credit to the teachers and to the parents. What we need to do in our education system is to stress equity and quality,” he added.
