The Minister in the Ministry Of Education is advising parents to look out for early signs of learning disabilities.
Speaking with members of the media on Wednesday, Dr. Francis said some students are unable to handle basic Language and Mathematics at the Primary school level.
Dr. Francis says the low scores at the SEA exams are cause for concern.
Dr. Lovell did however add that the Ministry can do a lot more with focusing on the schools which do not excel as much as others.
He said that this current issue has proven to be a major crisis.
