The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) President, Angel Carbonu, is promoting discussion to resolve concerns with the free senior high school (SHS) policy.

He demanded a long-term solution to the issues facing the education system, specifically the free SHS program.

“There needs to be a conversation for us to be able to iron out some rough edges of the free senior high school concept,” he said during an interview on Citi TV’s The Point of View. That seems to me like the start of a conversation, and we should seize the opportunity to explore further because it is imperative that we have this conversation. It is imperative that we have that discussion.

We must examine the fact that public business schools are substantially declining, as are tertiary institution bursaries. We are advocating for a discussion among interested parties led by highly knowledgeable and perceptive facilitators. so that we can address the issues facing education in this nation.

He brought up the fact that a number of education-related unions have sent their recommendations to political parties to be included in their manifestos.

“The unions have submitted their recommendations to the different political parties so that they can include them on their platforms. We don’t want people coming this time to stand on platforms and make flowery promises; instead, promises should be grounded in the policies outlined in each political party’s manifesto, he said to host Bernard Avle.
