School Administration Below Par [video]

The standard of school administration in the Virgin Islands is below par. This assessment was made by Education Minister Hon. Myron Walwyn who says the level is not where it should be.


Minister Walwyn was addressing the opening of a two-week Educational Leadership Training for principals in public and private primary and secondary schools. The training, being conducted by the National College for Educational Leadership (NCEL) of Jamaica, involves on-the-job assessment over eight months.

The training exercise signals the beginning of a Licensing Regime for all teachers in the local education system starting first with Principals.

The scope of training for educators also goes beyond Principals. Seven focus areas will be covered along with other sessions.Technical teachers of the Elmore Stoutt High School and the Virgin Islands School of Technical Studies will receive certification in the teaching of Technical subjects.

Sessions for specific cohorts of the teaching fraternity will also be held. They include Differentiated Instruction, Balancing Home & Work as a Busy Professional, Stress Management, Developing Professional Communities, the Teaching of Math, Language and Science and Tackling the Constraints and Ethical Issues of Teaching.
