The changes by the Ministry of Education that require the children writing the National Grade Six AssessmentChief EducationOfficer, Olato Sam(NGSA), to write their names as opposed to the traditional candidate numbers on examination papers, have resulted in a few raised eyebrows.Recently, members of the parliamentary opposition weighed in on the issue. Former Minister of Education, Priya Manickchand, cited the change as a chink in the integrity armour of Guyana’s education system.With a name instead of a number, Manickchand said that it will pave the way for subjectivity when it comes to the marking of the local aspect of the paper.Chief Education Officer (CEO), Olato Sam, when contacted yesterday said that one of the reasons for the change is to provide proper tracking of the papers in the event that a candidate number should be written incorrectly.Adding that there have been issues of this nature in the past, this change is a more efficient means that has been adapted, Sam stated.“Administratively, it is to track students in the event that a candidate number would have been written in incorrectly, or any of those potential issues emerge.“We’ve had issues like that in the past. This is a more efficient means that has been adapted; to provide proper tracking of the papers, has nothing to do with marking.“So in the event for example, someone writes a six and it looks like a zero on the candidate number, without the name, we have no way of reconciling any issues in relation to those papers, ” Sam said.Manickchand has also raised concerns about the alleged path of secrecy taken by the Ministry to make these changes while adding that subjectivity and discrimination were most likely to derive from the local markings of these examination papers.The Government Information Agency (GINA) later yesterday issued a release quoting the CEO, Olato Sam, stated that there is “nothing sinister” in the Ministry’s move to change the format of the NGSA.Sam told the media that the officers of the Ministry of Education are professionals that “do not get themselves involved in sinister and secretive processes.”Sam explained that in changing the format of the examination, the Ministry consulted the premier assessment entity in the region, (which is the Caribbean Examinations Council).GINA stated that Sam told media operatives that the Ministry adopted the new format and measures because “they are more efficient and will be more effective in preserving the integrity of our assessment in Guyana and that is our primary concern.”“It is not my place to get involved in any of the other things, but I can assure all of the public that our assessment process is going to be conducted with the standards and the expectations, that are not just local, but are regional, Jerseys China Wholesale, ” Sam was quoted by GINA.“We have certainly ensured that all of the expectations that are actually enshrined in the assessment processes that have international standards are now being brought to bear on the local process, ” he added.The Ministry is currently crafting a broad-based response to public concerns raised over the new format for the examination. This is in addition to a press release that the Ministry would have already sent out outlining clearly, that the new requirements are administrative functions that will in no way affect the marking process of the examinations.The release stated that the each of the four subjects written in the National Grade Six Assessment has two papers (Paper 1 and Paper 2) and as it relates to candidate information, the two papers require different sets of information.For paper one, the answer sheets will have the candidate information—candidate name and identification number—already printed or ‘pre-slugged’.“The candidates are required to write/sign their names as a mechanism to ensure that the candidate for whom the paper was prepared is actually the one who answers the questions.   This will have no implications for marking, because these answer sheets are all marked electronically, ” the release stated.With the paper two, the cover page of the answer sheet is “bifurcated and perforated”.  The Test Code, Subject, and Candidate Number are required on both sides.The Test Code and Subject will already be printed, while candidates will be required to write in their Candidate Number—this information is provided for them on the timetables given to every candidate.In addition, on the right half of the paper only, candidates are also required to write in the name of their school, their full name, date of birth and gender.The right side of the sheets are all detached prior to the commencement of the marking of paper two and retained for administrative purposes only.The information that would be evident during the marking process would be the Test Code, Subject, and Candidate Number only.“These are administrative mechanisms that will have no bearing on the marking process whatsoever, ” the release concluded.

– says physical evidence was enoughAfter one year, the relatives of the 52-year-old fish vendor, who was killed on the occasion of Indian Arrival Day 2012, are not pleased with the fact that the accused was freed, and the matter was dismissed solely because there were no eyewitnesses.They believe that there was sufficient physical evidence to prove that Baldeo Mohan also known as ‘Painter’ was hit by the car which was being driven by the now acquitted man.It was reported that Mohan, who resided at 33 Doctor’s Dam, La Grange, West Bank Demerara died as a result of a hit- and-run accident during the wee hours of May 5th 2012.According to the man’s family, Baldeo Mohan left home at around 02:30hrs riding his bicycle to purchase fish from the Meadow Bank Wharf. This had been his daily routine for the last 20 years of his life.Dead: Baldeo MohanKaieteur News understands that the well known fish vendor was riding along the La Grange Public Road when his bicycle was hit from behind by a car, parts of which was left at the scene as the driver fled without rendering assistance to Baldeo, who was hurled in a nearby trench.Mohan’s bicycle had broken into two pieces from the impact, and was in close proximity to the man’s body. The fish basket was found some distance away.The man’s daughter Devi told Kaieteur News that a piece of the car’s bumper which had a registration number imprinted on it was discovered and given to the police as evidence.A few days after the accident, 25-year-old Imran Neshaw of Coghlan Dam, Pouderoyen, West Bank Demerara, in company of his attorney, turned himself in.He was later slapped with eight charges, causing death by dangerous driving; dangerous driving; being an unlicenced driver; breach of insurance; failure to stop after an accident; failure to render assistance to an accident victim; failure to report an accident; and taking a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent.After pleading not guilty to all the offences, Neshaw was refused bail and remanded to prison for a few days before returning to court on May 25th.Following 19 court dates, the matter was dismissed on the basis that there were no eyewitnesses.However, Mohan’s wife Nowhari, and their two children are contending that the road was bright enough for the driver of the car to have seen that someone else was also on the road.“My father was always cautious. He riding to town for years, and he does talk about how some drivers does be drunk and how they does drive at that hour in the morning, so he always used to ride in the corner where he supposed to. Nobody can’t tell we that he wasn’t in the corner, not even the driver of the car. And how they expect to get eyewitness at that hour? He was riding in the corner, that’s how he end up in the trench after he get hit, ” the man’s daughter Devi Mohan told Kaieteur News.She believes that the driver of the car should have been jailed for at least one of the many charges that were put against him, even if it was for taking the car without permission.“This is not right…how can it be fair that so much people dying and nobody paying for it? This thing becoming too prevalent, like a norm. Lil, lil children and all too…something has to be done, ” the woman said.She added that the most worrying of all, is that “even if things like these are just what the word suggest, -merely accidents, people are purposely being left to die. After you know you hit somebody, the least you could do is try to help. The fact that you leave that person there, should be considered murder. The system needs to start punishing people for doing these things…humanity is lost in today’s society, ” she added.Just recently, Agnes Dabydial, a member of Mothers in Black had called for ‘Causing Death for Dangerous Driving’ to be changed to murder, NFL Jerseys Cheap, noting that it is unfair for people’s lives to be regarded as cheap as a few thousand dollars in bail and mere months imprisonment.
