How to start? : A Minister PASSIONATE about education!

The whole concept about total reform of the Education system started with the newly appointed Minister for Education, the Hon. Alden McLaughlin. Immediately after election in May 2005 he visited every Govt. school in the country. Not just a formal cursory visit but spending several hours in each, sitting down talking to staff, about their views of the existing education service. This was the "first of many firsts" and one that made most staff really believe that this time, maybe, something would happen. The type of fundamental change that they wanted though will tae time t oimplement if we are to get it right!!
