Barbados: is in crisis, the teaching profession has a critical role to play in addressing the challenges this country faces.

Dr. Henderson Carter, Senior Lecturer in History, The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, as he delivered the featured address at the Erdiston Teachers’ Training College’s graduation ceremony at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre on Saturday night, maintained that at the core of the problem is the growing inability of our children to read and reason.

“This crisis is characterised by an emerging block culture, or perhaps we might want to say, an established block culture, which militates against pride and industry and pride and productivity. The crisis is also characterised by a sub-culture of savagery, which has no regard for human life, hence the shootings and the recklessness on our roads,” he said.
