Opposition Spokesman on Technology and Member of Parliament for North-West St. Catherine, Hugh Graham, says very little has been done over the summer holiday to improve the education system’s technological readiness and ability to facilitate the continuation of online teaching and learning.

In a statement today, Mr. Graham says he is extremely concerned that the Government has failed to achieve a number of targets in relation to the delivery of devices to students and increased rollout of fibre-optic broadband internet connectivity across the island.

The Opposition Spokesman says he has heard nothing more about these projects and is concerned that the expectations for improved connectivity will not be met.

Mr. Graham said he was extremely disappointed with the way in which the Government has treated these projects which are critical to the education system as the students are being disadvantaged through further learning loss.
