MP Padarath: Allow Venezuelan kids in schools


    Opposition MP Barry Padarath believes integrating Venezuelan children into the local school system could help push to make Spanish the country’s second language.

    The UNC has again called for them to be included in schools, as even though registration for the migrants started in 2019, to date no policy has been put in place for their children to be educated.

    And, MP Padarath believes education stakeholders and civil society should voice their support for this call.

    If the policy doesn’t change, he says T&T will have a large section of society growing up without a fair access to education.
