PLP: We will get rid of middle schools

The Progressive Labour Party would make good on its vow to eliminate middle schools if returned to power, replacing them with “five-year decentralised high schools”.

Some middle schools, such as the Whitney Institute and Clearwater, would become senior schools, Marc Bean, the Leader of the Opposition, told the House of Assembly in the Reply to the Throne Speech.

The PLP would also implement the Caribbean Examinations Council curriculum and exams as the Island's standard curriculum.

The Bermuda College would be converted to a university college, offering designations similar to those provided by the Bermuda Insurance Institute, as well as master's programmes in the same subjects as its bachelor programmes, with CedarBridge Academy becoming its science and technology campus.
