Cayman’s educational system appears to have a fatal flaw.
I am an American tourist and occasional visitor to the Cayman Islands. I quickly noticed that the preponderance of frontline hotel staff are foreign born, and was puzzled by that.
A cab driver informed me that students are passed ‘on age’, regardless of competence. This policy is a recipe for social disaster. Over time, Caymanians will increasingly be unprepared to enter the workforce for higher paying island jobs. More foreign workers will displace them.
This will lead to social unrest, including higher crime rates. It is not good for Cayman. The island generates great revenue from tourists. Better to devote more resources to public education than expand tourism. Social justice requires it.
