More Math Specialists for Primary Schools

first_imgThe Minister of Education, Youth and Information will be expanding the number of expert mathematics teachers at the primary level under its ‘Specialist Model’.Portfolio Minister, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, said that 39 schools are currently benefitting under the initiative, which was piloted at the start of the 2018/19 academic year in September.He said plans are in place to expand it to an additional 200 schools at the beginning of the 2019/20 school year, and full implementation across the system scheduled for 2021.“Schools are provided with resources, and additional training with certification is provided for teachers, who qualify as primary mathematics specialists. The model will see these teachers being solely responsible for the delivery of the primary mathematics curriculum,” Senator Reid said.He was speaking at the launch of The Mico University College’s International Mathematics Summit at the institution’s premises on Marescaux Road in St. Andrew on January 30.Senator Reid said that the Ministry continues to sustain the deployment of mathematics coaches to critical primary and secondary schools.He said the coaches will primarily focus on helping mathematics teachers obtain the requisite skills to effectively deliver the subject to students.“Coaches observe lessons and provide immediate feedback, facilitate in-school professional development, co-plan and co-teach lessons and conduct demonstration lessons. Coaches also support interventions for critical students to a limited extent,” he pointed out.The Minister informed that there are 54 coaches supporting 115 primary-level schools and 25 coaches supporting 86 secondary institutions.“The approach has contributed to the steady gains the system has seen in student performance at both the primary and secondary levels of the system,” he noted.Meanwhile, Senator Reid indicated that the National Mathematics Policy Guidelines, developed and implemented in 2013, are to be reviewed to ensure alignment with changes to the national curriculum, and in keeping with international best practices and standards.He said the policy document has served to establish standards for teachers at the primary and secondary levels and at teacher-training institutions.He noted that since the implementation of the policy, there has been an increase in the number of fully qualified mathematics teachers deployed to the education system from less than 20 per cent of the secondary teaching cohort in 2011, to 33 per cent at the end of the 2017 school year.Senator Reid said the Ministry has also increased the credit hours for mathematics education courses for all applicable teacher education degree programmes.last_img read more

Maersk Line Expects Minimal Impact from Hanjins Move

first_imgzoom In the wake of the Hanjin Shipping’s decision to commence rehabilitation procedure in Korea, the Danish shipping company Maersk Line said that the company expects the move to have a minimal impact on customers’ cargo.“We are aware of our customers who have cargo on board two of Hanjin’s operated vessels, Maersk Sebarok and Maersk Senang, sailing on the Chennai Express service between Far East Asia and South East India. While we expect minimal disruption, we are proactively working on reducing impact on cargo delivery,” Maersk Line said.The company said that it will “strive for this development to not have any impact” on its customers, adding that it will continue to monitor the situation closely.Additionally, the company said that, “despite their names,” the two chartered vessels, Hanjin New Jersey and Hanjin Florida, sailing on the Mashariki service between Far East Asia and East Africa, “neither of these vessels is owned nor operated by Hanjin Shipping.”These vessels are fully operated by Maersk Line.On August 30, the company instructed its global operations centers not to load any cargo onto Hanjin-owned vessels.last_img read more
