The Education Minister attributed school administrations’ disobedience to some government officials and other parents’ support to such act.

“Officials and other parents, whose children are attending Risk Institute, have failed to speak against such actions often demonstrated by some school administrations, instead they support same,” he also said.

Minister Warner emphasized that the System needs financial commitment to supplement progress made in the reform process. He said: “The priorities of the Ministry have been defined towards attracting financial commitment.”
