Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness has named a 14-member high-level Commission on Education Transformation.
It will be responsible for conducting a comprehensive review and assessment of Jamaica’s education system including its structure and operations.
The commission will also recommend actions for change.
According to Holness, the Professor Orlando Patterson-chaired commission is expected to produce its report by March 2021.
The last major assessment of the education system was undertaken in 2004 by the Task Force on Educational Reform with Dr Rae Davis as chairman.
