Trinidad Private Special Needs Schools
Within a social group a mother with a special needs child that was placed in a private school said among other things,
Comments: The special needs schools in the north are very expensive. There are some in south and central that are more reasonable but the groups are mixed and the assistants not as well trained. There should be a standard for this like abroad. You cannot just open a school and say it is special needs unless everyone working there is equipped in both equipment and qualifications.
Government Not Paying For Private Special Needs Schools
Secretary of the Private Special Schools Association Jacqui Leotaud said two schools will close by the end of the month, as the schools cannot afford to pay their electricity bills or staff members. Ref. Source 4h.
The government should NOT be paying anything for PRIVATE schools. This is the government's responsibility to ensure that the education of ALL special needs children are met just as they do with neurotypical children. Stop this nonsense of favoritism by only helping the brightest and know that a country is only as good as to how it treats the most vulnerable in society.
