Letter: Transforming education requires decolonisation

Dear Editor,

The declared policy of President Ali’s Government is to use oil and gas proceeds to transform education, health, infrastructure, and the non-oil sectors (Guyana Chronicle, April 26, 2022). This policy is admirable, and will divest the windfall from oil and gas into conventional sectors.

This article is not intended to provide an answer, but is a narrative to provoke public discourse to inform the Government’s transformational policy on education.

Some readers may conclude that this narrative is utopian and cannot be accomplished by Guyanese (perhaps a legacy of colonial thinking). Indeed, it is utopian, and I make no apology. It is bold, far-reaching, fresh-thinking, self-confident unwillingness to accept conventional paradigm, and a willingness to take risks that are the hallmarks for transformation.

Sincerely,
Dr Muniram Budhu

Utopia indeed Muniram ... utopia indeed.
