Education Minister – Schools To Be Ranked Based On NEI Report
Education Minister Senator Ruel Reid recently revealed that the National Education Inspectorate (NEI) Report will be used to rank secondary schools across the island.
According to the senator, both the report and Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) results will be used to compile the ranking.
He is quoted by RJR as saying:
“We have to look at holistically how we are evaluating the performance of the system. In fact, the NEI will be coming shortly with what we call a Value Added Matrix, where we look at the starting points of students in relation to the school quality and type and see how schools are adding value to our students overall.”
Minister Reid also revealed that in the latest report, schools such as Kensington Primary, St. Andrew High, Campion College, Southborough Primary, Wolmer’s Boys’ and Wolmer’s Girls’ schools have been rated as “exceptionally high”.
The most recent NEI Report revealed that there have been improvements across all eight indicators of school effectiveness in the 189 institutions inspected.
The NEI’s Key Performance indicators according to their website are:
- Leadership and Management;
- Teaching Support for Students’Learning;
- Students’ Academic Performance
- School’s and Students’ Progress over time
- Students’ Personal and Social Development
- The Quality and Use of Human and Material Resources
- Curriculum and Enhancement Programmes
- Students’ safety, security, health and wellbeing
