According to CNews, Kamla stated that as a birthday gift to the children of the nation, the government will give laptops or tablets to ALL Primary School students.
As usual more wasting of money by the PP to satisfy and election plow. That is not a real help to this country.
The money could be better spent on fixing schools and hiring more teachers instead of exposing children to more games and porn. Yes that's what they used them for you think they really using that to study?
Title: Trinidad Laptops For Primary School Students
Comments: Funny how she keeps ignoring the kids that cannot attend school. Special needs kids are not welcome in public schools, so they are homeschooled, attend very expensive private schools if they are fortunate, or are just not educated at all. Take for example an autistic child. Give them an iPad or tablet and they can use it to learn. They can use it to manage their day by following a 'to do' schedule from reminding them to go to the toilet, wash their hands, brush their teeth, etc. They can even use it to communicate if they are non-verbal! Her own granddaughter has autism, and yet still she ignores the children that need these tools the most, and need the funding for education and therapy. With the proper therapy and education, special needs children can grow into adults that can be productive members of society.
