Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Ralph Gonsalves while speaking on WEFM last week provided an update on the process of acquiring tablets for the nation’s students.
“We’ve had 3,000 tablets on the ground, Samsung, good quality, these are the tablets and we are ordering another 25,000, but of the 25,000, 14,000 will be of the same Samsung brand. These will be for the students of the community college, the students at secondary school and grade 6.”
11,000 units, approximately, of another type called JOSH, that’s a more generic type; for the lower classes, grade and down, of the primary schools.
So that whole package will be about $12 million dollars.”
