Photo credit: GIS NewsEducation Minister Honourable Petter St. Jean has told parents of students of the Roseau Primary School that their socio-background has nothing to do with their performance.Mr St. Jean says the Roseau Primary School has been suffering because of the socio-economic background of the parents.“For a very long time now, Roseau Primary has been categorized as one of the schools that have suffered because of the socio-economic background of the parents. We speak here of the areas like Silver Lake, Yam Piece, Gutter and Pound. May I say to you parents that your geological location, your family background or your socio-economic status has nothing to do with the achievement of your children,” he said.He said every child can learn and every child can do well.“Politics is the involvement of parents and the wider community to ensure success for the children. I want to challenge you the parents of children of Roseau Primary to work hard and ensure that the school becomes one of the shining examples of education in Dominica,” he added.St Jean was delivering remarks at a ceremony to announce the adoption of that school by LIME Dominica.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img
