Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar, speaking this afternoon at the International Conference on Population and Development in New York pointed out that her People’s Partnership Government has this year presented a national budget that sees a large sum being offered to the education ministry. She said this move is aimed at making the education System MDG plus, which will result in this country achieving universal early childhood education by 2015.
Mrs. Persad Bissessar who left Trinidad earlier on Monday, also told her counterparts that she recently redesigned certain programs in the youth affairs ministry, aimed at especially ensuring that the vulnerable youth have access to education.
The Prime Minister said despite challenges faced, her government is committed to ensuring equality and equity in an environment that would harness the talent of current and future generations.
