There has been a call for Minister of Education Anthony Garcia to clarify claims of scholarship bias by the past administration.
Former Education Minister Tim Gopeesingh made the call and denounced such reports while calling for a public apology.
Speaking at a conference at the Office of the Leader of Opposition, Dr. Gopeesingh maintains scholarships were awarded based on merit only.
He said the Minister’s statement has far reaching implications and he stated that he would forward Garcia’s statement to CXC and other regional boards for review.
He also accused this Government of moving backwards with respect to education.
