The Education Minister, Ronald Thwaites, says it is too early to intervene in the controversy over the graduation policy at the Glenmuir High School which bars students who do not pass CSEC maths and English while in fifth form.

On Saturday, The Gleaner reported the plight of one student who could be left out of the 2014 graduating class because she sat CSEC maths and English way before she reached fifth form.

READ: Despite achieving seven CSEC subjects …

At age 12, Leann Lewis passed English Language with grade one at the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC).

Leann who is now in fourth form later passed mathematics at grade three and now has seven CSEC subjects.

However, she might not be among Glenmuir’s graduates next year because the policy of the school is that graduates must pass maths and English in fifth form.

The principal Monacia Williams says the school is not instructing that Leann should re-sit Maths and English when she reaches fifth form, it is only insisting that she must abide by the graduation policy.

Contacted last night, the Education Minister, Ronald Thwaites, said it is a matter for the board of the Glenmuir High School to deal with.
