MLP study on equal opportunities in education
The Labour Party has commissioned a group of experts to come up with initiatives that would help students from all areas to have access to equal opportunities in education, Opposition Leader Joseph Muscat said.
During a visit to Junior College yesterday, he said it was not true that people from certain parts of the country were not attaining certain levels of education. Proof of this was the balanced mixture of Junior College students from the north and south of the island.
Dr Muscat called for more resources to support the college and its enthusiastic students.
He spoke to a number of students while touring the college with the principal, Godfrey Muscat.
MLP spokesman on education, Evarist Bartolo, said that, while the party agreed with the proposed education reforms, it would measure the success in terms of the results achieved.
Such reforms required the necessary human and financial resources, he argued.
