School age extension needed

It’s about time Government extends the school age!

I was fed up of hearing from the Government that our children are our future, yet here they were kicking young teenagers out of school at 16 years old (and my son had only just turned 16 by the time he graduated high school).

I attended CIHS until I was 19 and even then I felt emotionally too young to be leaving school.

I’m glad the Government is reconsidering their actions and someone in the cabinet finally has the sense to see that they were doing an injustice to the youngsters of this island. I’m just sorry it has come too late for my son because I have now made arrangements for my Caymanian son to continue his education in a high school overseas.
