The government of Tamil Nadu had set up a committee to assess the social and economic impacts of the NEET exam, which pointed out that the exam had given rise to a culture of training in the country where children from families well-off only passed the exam.

The Tamil Nadu government committee also pointed out that students who were enrolled in MBBS courses through the NEET exam performed poorly than students who enrolled on the basis of class 12 grades.

Experts express their concern: Even though there is a growing demand to run NEET exams twice, experts have expressed concern about it. They said it was difficult to hold exams for more than 15 lakh candidates in pen-and-paper mode each year, especially during the pandemic.

As NEET 2021 was marred by several controversies ranging from cheating to scandals, experts have raised concerns about the review being conducted in a fair and genuine manner.

Previously, it had been reported that the Ministry of Education was in favor of holding NEET 2022 exams twice a year. However, no official statement on this has been released yet.

Annual income limit of Rs 8 lakh for the EWS category: In the meantime, the Center told the Supreme Court on Thursday that it had made a thoughtful decision to review the Rs 8 lakh annual income limit set to determine the category of economically weaker sections (EWS) for booking in the NEET admissions for postgraduate medical studies. Classes.

During the hearing of the case, the Supreme Bench of Justices DY Chandrachud, Surya Kant and Vikram Nath were informed by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta that a committee would be formed to determine the criteria for the SAP and that this would take four weeks. .

Representing the Center, Mehta said NEET (PG) advice would be postponed for another four weeks, in line with assurances previously given to the court.

The Jamaica College board said its recommendation to extend Principal Ruel Reid’s special leave had not been approved by the Education Department.

Reid’s current leave expires tomorrow.

The board says negotiations are continuing.

READ: PM, Williams says talks still ongoing as JC fallout deepens

The council had recommended a five-year extension.

Its expiration would coincide with Reid’s retirement in 2026.

Reid, who is in court on corruption charges, has already exhausted two years of special leave with full pay and emoluments amounting to more than $ 11 million from November 21, 2019 until today.

Prior to the two-year special leave with full pay and benefits, Reid had used up his earned vacation leave for the period March 25, 2019 to November 2019.

However, during the same period, the department had also paid acting director Wayne Robinson just over $ 11 million.

Robinson has been acting principal since 2016, when Reid was seconded from his post of educator to serve as Minister of Education.

He resigned in March 2019 amid an emerging scandal at the Caribbean Maritime University (CMU).

Full declaration

1. Over the past few days, the Jamaica College Board of Trustees has been working to make arrangements for the active role of the Director of Jamaica College, in view of the fact that Mr. Ruel Reid’s current special leave expires on Saturday 20 November 2021.

2. Discussions are at an advanced stage and, as might be expected, are confidential in nature. The Council fully expects that they will be concluded successfully shortly, at which point a further update will be given.

3. To clarify several misconceptions and misunderstandings in the public domain, please further note that: –

a. The board’s priority is to maintain the current stability and status quo at the school and therefore the board has once again recommended that Mr. Reid’s special leave be extended to facilitate the continued good governance of the school. . However, this required approval from the Ministry of Education, and that approval was not granted.
b. Since 2016, when he stepped down as principal of Jamaica College, the school has not paid any salaries or other fees to Mr. Reid.
vs. JC is aware that criminal charges have been laid against Mr. Reid but has no evidence to support a disciplinary hearing that could lead to his termination. This despite assiduous attempts to obtain such evidence.
D. There is no “upheaval” or “protest” at Jamaica College and there have been no resignations from the board of trustees in connection with this matter. We can confirm that two executive members of the Jamaica College Old Boys Association, who are also leaders of the PTA, have resigned from both bodies. There were no “mass” resignations as noted.

4. The great venerable institution known as Jamaica College continues its journey of excellence with several notable achievements over the past five years under the
outstanding leadership from current acting principal Wayne Robinson. A few of them are listed below: –

Academic performance

a. Students passing five or more subjects, including math and English, rose from 58% to 85% in CBSC over the period;
b. CXC performance has improved significantly. This includes a 77% increase in the number of subjects in which over 90% of seated boys have passed, from 9 of 24 subjects to 16 of 24 subjects today.
vs. In 2019, 12 boys achieved the top ten regional and national placements in CXC

Teaching methods and programs

D. Enhancement of value-added programs by adding investigative journalism, food and nutrition to CAPE, environmental sciences to CAPE, construction project management; continuing aviation courses
e. We have changed the way of teaching from a grammar-based pedagogy to a STEAM-infused project-based modality that involves the integration of disciplines, inquiry, application critical thinking and problem solving.
F. The STEAM project involved an investment in digital and communication tool kits, equipment and furniture totaling over $ 75 million J.

Teacher development

g. Strengthening the professional development of staff and improving the staff incentive program. We also organized and hosted an international professional development seminar for staff.

New and improved infrastructure

h. Development of a J $ 22 million robotics laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment, (Hendrickson family)
I. Construction of a new multi-use Ashenheim stadium of US $ 1 million (Ashenheim family)
j. Six Form Refurbished (Abrahams Family)
k. Renovation of the Gore building (Gore family)

Sports and extracurricular performances

the. Currently defending Boys Champs and Manning Cup champions, and has won Manning Cup 3 of the last four competitions
mr. Won three World Robotics Championships awards and now have 17 in all. Much more than any other school in the Caribbean. Also organized and won the first international local robotics competition in Jamaica.

In addition, the government will continue to transform referral services by facilitating their access through the creation of a network in which referral services for chronic diseases will be located in city centers, Rondonuwu informed.

A model of female leadership at the Kolbe House prison ministry https://the-education-store.com/a-model-of-female-leadership-at-the-kolbe-house-prison-ministry/ Thu, 18 Nov 2021 16:41:08 +0000 https://the-education-store.com/a-model-of-female-leadership-at-the-kolbe-house-prison-ministry/ After a winding career path that includes working as an accountant and physiotherapist while raising five children, criminal justice reform lawyer MaryClare Birmingham says she has finally landed in the right place at the right time.

After a winding career path that includes working as an accountant and physiotherapist while raising five children, criminal justice reform lawyer MaryClare Birmingham says she has finally landed in the right place at the right time. As the Executive Director of Kolbe House Jail Ministry, an agency of the Archdiocese of Chicago that serves those affected by the criminal justice system, she is excited to be at the forefront of change.

MaryClare Birmingham is the first woman and the first lay person to lead the Archdiocese of Chicago’s Kolbe House prison ministry.

“The landscape for discussing criminal justice and incarceration issues has really emerged over the past year,” she says. “George Floyd’s death in May 2020 had a huge impact in Chicago. At Kolbe House, this brought racial disparities in the criminal justice system to the fore. “

Birmingham says Floyd’s death sparked new conversations about racial justice and fairness, especially in the area of ​​criminal justice reform. “Our community is more and more willing to fight racism,” she said. “This is important because the solutions are not superficial changes but deeper changes, in effect creating employment opportunities for people with a history of conviction, digging deeper into and seeing the whole person. ”

Although Birmingham has not taken on a criminal justice work, she believes the Holy Spirit has brought her to where she is today. “I believe my entire past career and personal life experience has prepared me and informed my ability to serve in this way,” she says.

Part of her commitment to criminal justice reform comes from her daughters, whom she and her partner adopted in Russia when they were 14 and 10 years old. “They grew up with drug addiction issues in their family,” she says. “They are wonderful and loving girls, but they have gone through an emotional trauma that has shaped them tremendously. They had to learn to trust, to make the right choices, and it took years. It gave me insight into people in the criminal justice system who have experienced difficulties and trauma. Resources are needed to help them heal and become who they are meant to be.

Named in honor of Saint Maximilian Kolbe, a Polish priest imprisoned in Auschwitz who voluntarily gave his life to save another man, the Kolbe house focuses its mission on pastoral ministry in prison, accompanying the families of incarcerated people and assistance with the reintegration of people into the community after their release. Most of the released prisoners are placed in halfway houses with nothing but clothes on their backs and $ 10: Kolbe House staff help them get food, metro and bus cards, accommodation stable and a job. They also do activities aimed at restorative justice, such as a weekly reconciliation mass followed by a potluck.

As Executive Director, Birmingham manages the organization’s budget and is responsible for outreach across the Archdiocese. “Part of our role is to provide education and engagement so that Catholics in our community understand how human beings are affected by incarceration,” she says. “Once people find out about this, they are outraged and worried. They want to know what a better vision could be: a model of restorative justice that enables redemption and fulfillment. They want to know how we are called, as disciples of Jesus Christ, to overhaul this system.

Our ministry is to recognize the whole person, broken as we are all in sin, loved unconditionally, worthy unconditionally, ever capable of redemption and change.

Birmingham notes that misconceptions about those who have been incarcerated are often a barrier to achieving this vision. “Our job doesn’t imply that people shouldn’t be held responsible for the wrong they’ve done, but everyone is worth more than their worst deed,” she said. “We have a large tendency to close the book on people. Our ministry is to recognize the whole person, broken as we are all in sin, loved unconditionally, worthy unconditionally, ever capable of redemption and change. Part of my role is to put Kolbe House in the public conversation so that we can bring a vision of what criminal justice and incarceration should look like in accordance with gospel values.

During the 2020-2021 academic year, Birmingham was assisted by fellow volunteer Linde Hoffman, who joined the Kolbe House team while volunteering for Amate House. She provided administrative support and worked directly with inmates.

Hoffman, who lived in the same University of Notre Dame dormitory where Birmingham lived 40 years earlier, says working at Kolbe House has prompted her to look at criminal justice reform in a new light. “It’s people like you and me who are incarcerated,” she said. “We forget that, hiding them behind bars, marking them for life with their crime. But the people who commit crimes are also victims. There is so much work to be done in restorative justice, even reimagining what the physical space of a prison looks like. Countries like Sweden and Norway offer vocational training, mental health care and the possibility for people to leave the establishment for a job. We could do that too.

Hoffman says she is also inspired by the vision and leadership of her supervisor. “MaryClare has been very generous in organizing meetings every two weeks to talk about my experiences and address my concerns, to help me shape my role at Kolbe House and to be a constant guiding force in my career,” says- she. “She is a model of female leadership, leading with conviction, strength, grace and power. I am a person focused on leadership, and it is difficult to see myself as part of an institution that emphasizes the masculine image. It’s inspiring to see MaryClare as Executive Director of Maison Kolbe when all of her predecessors were men and priests. It’s a sign to me that the church is moving towards more female representation.

“I know that it is celebrated in the Archdiocese that I am the first layman and the first woman in this role. We need more lay leaders in the church; we are all called to contribute to the kingdom of God, ”says Birmingham. “Our priests are wonderful and I rely on them to guide me and guide me on how we are called. But there are many who can lead this ministry. The longer I am at it, the more I see that it is good for us as a church to expand the channels of leadership. We are all called as Catholics to serve. This call should not be defined narrowly.

If you’ve ever attended a church service at Christian Life Assembly-CLA Nyarutarama, there’s a good chance you’ve heard a harmonious voice leading worship. This is Maya Nzeyimana, the cult leader of the church.

Her wonderful influencing talent as a singer. Through her music, she spreads gospel and her impact extends far.

For 16 years now, she has served in ministry at other businesses that she has undertaken along the way.

Nzeyimana wears several hats; church minister, choirmaster, bible teacher, artist, instrumentalist, she is also the mother, songwriter, actress and wife of gospel artist Fabrice Nzeyimana.

Maya Nzeyimana, with her husband

A gospel artist herself, she has sung and performed in songs such as Umugabane wanje, Nduwawe, Muremyi w’isi, Umwami w’ibihe, Imana ihoraho, Overflow, Ndaguhimbaza, I long for you, Reka ngushime, among others.

Discover his talent

Growing up, Nzeyimana enjoyed listening to music, mainly from the vineyard and integrity genres.

But she never really started singing until she was 16 when she gave her life to Christ and began to serve God.

Since then, she has mainly led worship teams. But she was also engaged in preaching sermons to Sunday school children.

Being on the worship team was never easy for her because she was a very shy person, she says.

Nzeyimana in class with his students.

But once a problem arose between their pastor and the worship team and they could not lead the service. When her father, who attended the same church, learned of the incident, he asked her to take the opportunity and sing.

Through obedience, she faced her fears head-on and the rest became history.

“The pastor heard me sing and was so impressed with my voice that he made me a conductor. It was this ordeal that awakened this “singer” in me that I was afraid to let out, “she says.

Currently, her role at CLA extends to theater, poetry and dance. She helped organize Christmas Cantata, their annual Christmas play, writing plays and screenplays.

Serve with her husband

Nzeyimana and her husband began full-time church service in 2016.

They have since started another ministry “Heavenly Melodies Africa” ​​whose purpose is to disciple and train people in the ministry of music.

Their ministry currently serves in four countries; Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya and Uganda, with expansion plans.

The Minister says serving with her husband is great in so many ways as they fulfill both their purpose and their passion.

“It can be difficult because we have to serve our ministries alongside our personal lives. Sometimes a problem in our relationship can affect our ministry, but we learn to prioritize the ministry of our marriage and our family above anything else, ”says Nzeyimana.

They write songs as a couple and advise each other on the message or melody in order to make the song stand out clearly. When composing music, they mainly focus on themes, scriptures, and make sure the song is about the gospel.

Her goals

She relishes discipleship; work with young people who want to grow and understand God.

Nzeyimana however takes time for personal growth. She is pursuing a master’s degree in advanced education and has enrolled in a master’s degree in systematic theology.

Some of the challenges she faces as a church minister include the ministry being very tempting and easy to turn into work other than focusing on the relationship with God.

She continues that the ministry is not profitable either because gospel artists invest a lot but don’t earn much. “It takes it to have the heart to serve and not expect much in return,” she says.

Through her classes that she develops, the 32-year-old offers opportunities for others to understand the Bible. She is also eager to create a school for dropouts to access free education.

His concluding words are about the search for God above all else.

“My advice to young people is to pursue God first and foremost. Everything we do in life outside of God’s will is meaningless. Don’t fall into the trap of comparing yourself to others because you are unique. Comparison is something I struggled with, but now I know God has given me a unique gift in so many ways, ”she insists.

A placard demonstration outside the gates of the unfinished Ramai Trace Hindu school in Debe again called on the Education Ministry to open its doors to students.

The protest, which is part of the “popular revolution” campaign in the Oropouche East constituency, accused the government of victimization which has injured residents of Ramai Trace and surrounding communities.

Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal expressed solidarity with residents, saying that for six years in a row, parents, teachers and students have consistently and peacefully expressed their discontent to the Ministry of Education and the government.

“A school that accommodated over 250 students and a hallmark of the Ramai Trace and surrounding community, 95% complete at the end of the People’s Partnership mandate, has never been completed to date,” said the deputy.

Moonilal said residents were not acting illegally in expressing concerns about the government’s delay in completing school.

“It is the right of all our citizens to raise issues of urgent public importance and to hold the government to account for its promises and its apparent geographic discrimination,” he said.

The Ramai Trace Hindu School was being rebuilt under the People’s Partnership government led by Kamla Persad-Bissessar and although it is over 90% complete, students are still housed within a temple compound in about 45 minutes.

Parents said their children were in dire straits and called on the government to open the school.

Residents said the site is now overgrown with bushes and poses a safety hazard to people living in the community.

Last year, Moonilal wrote to the government asking them to consider finishing school during the Covid-19 restrictions, as students were taking classes online.

Residents staged several protests, including a four-day protest and a six-mile walk from Ramai Trace to the Education Department’s office in San Fernando.

The school was renamed the Dr Roodal Moonilal Ramai Trace Hindu School in honor of the MP in 2013.

In response to actions taken by residents, Education Minister Nyan Gadsby-Dolly told the Express that the school would be completed in the second phase of the ministry’s school completion project, which includes nine schools for an estimated cost of $ 407 million.

However, this phase will begin as soon as funding is provided by the Ministry of Finance.
