Government To Establish Six New Stem High Schools

As Jamaica moves forward with its new thrust towards education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), the Government plans to establish six new STEM high schools or academies that will serve as Centres of Excellence for STEM education.

“We are also collaborating with private-sector entities to establish a National STEM Teacher Development Centre, as the development of a cadre of high-quality teachers is critical to our efforts to transform the educational system,” the Prime Minister said.
