Is education in Mauritius equitable to all?

Written by
The education system in Mauritius is the talk of the town. While the debate is mostly on the abolition of the Certificate of Primary Education (CPE) and the introduction of the Nine-Year Schooling, the Institute Cardinal Jean Margéot (ICJM) discussed a more pertinent issue on Tuesday: are there equal opportunities in education for all in Mauritius?
The introduction of the nine-year schooling was the highlight among the educational measures announced in Budget 2014. This will result in the phasing out of the Certificate of Primary Education (CPE), considered too stressful and bulky at such a tender age.
A one-off grant of up to Rs 100,000 to each of the 125 private pre-primary disadvantaged schools. The existing crèche upgrading programme has been extended over another year for a maximum amount of Rs 200,000 per facility.
In a bid to couple Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) with pedagogical teaching, 62 State Secondary Schools (SSS) have set up and hosted their own school website. The launch was held last week in the presence of the two ministers concerned.
A training centre in Aeronautics Maintenance will soon be set up in Mauritius. The project will be carried out with the collaboration of ‘Institut de Maintenance Aéronautique’ (IMA) of Bordeaux, France, after accreditation from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The courses will thus gain international recognition and students will have the possibility of pursuing their studies abroad. The training is due to kick off in September 2014.
