patrickThere is no doubt that the relationship between Minister of Education Patrick Faber and the teachers of Belize is navigating in turbulent waters. Faber is often outspoken when criticizing teachers and holds no remorse to what he says.  In fact, he has stated several times that the country needs more qualified teachers in the education system.


And apparently Faber plans increase the numbers of qualified teachers in Belize through a Program which is expected to enhance the quality of primary education and the governance of the education system.


The program will be funded by a 10 million dollar loan approved by the Inter Development Bank. The program aims to prepare the teachers of today and tomorrow by supporting training institutes for new teachers and by training close to half of the country’s current primary education teachers. The program will also train primary school principals and develop and implement an information system for education management, which will benefit all of the country's primary and secondary schools.


In recent years the IDB has increasingly supported efforts to improve education and quality of teaching in Belize.

The program directly supports Belize’s national education strategy (2011-16), designed to alleviate high rates of grade repetition as only 48 percent of girls and 38 percent of boys make it all the way through primary school without repeating a grade), and overall low academic performance.
