The OBA believes each child is entitled to the best education available to fulfil his or her dreams.
The OBA believes a pillar of our society is to invest as much as possible in our young people, in formal and non-formal education, to give them the best preparation for any job market or business endeavour.
The OBA further believes that our education should be informed by developmental goals to safeguard our present but as flexible and wide as we can afford to secure a future for Bermuda in which technology and the Internet will only become more central to life and through which we can equip our youth to be global citizens, able to lead a new era for Bermuda, either at home or abroad.
Our education system needs recalibrating. This is not a matter for a big stick approach or ego-serving edits.
The OBA will lay out an overall framework for education delivery but will lead a collaborative approach to bring about the necessary reset.
Our framework will include ensuring the right environment that stimulates both educators and students; training at all levels; continuing education; entrenching STEAM in schools and in the community; and encouragements for excellence, especially in critical developmental areas.
No doubt about it. One of the OBA’s first moves in education will be to remove the politics from it and build a structure to ensure political interference, remains a thing of the past.
We believe our inventive plan will allow both educators and students to flourish and facilitate the innovation that will keep Bermuda as one of the sought out places in the word and our citizens equipped for the future.
