News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – The Minister of Education, Diallo Rabain has released a statement to advise of a delay in the announcement of his decision regarding the proposal for parish primary schools.

Minister Rabain shared: “Initially, I indicated that the outcome of the consultation process would be communicated by the end of the current school year. However, during the consultation process, 20 public, parish, and stakeholder meetings were held, and I received 131 submissions of over 300 pages involving over 1,000 unique consultees.

“As a result of the views and feedback received, more time is required to develop and prepare these critical decisions. Therefore, I have decided to announce the decisions on parish primary schools at the end of July instead.”

Minister Rabain concluded: “The additional time will be used to continue the careful preparation of decisions that reflect my commitment to listen, consider and analyze the feedback, and the views from persons with a shared stake in improving the quality of education for all of the young people that we serve.”
