breaking some kind of law?
Ryan Singhzz---Like d PNM
famz really blessed yes... Like
Rowley hav God in he. I goin up
for my miracle.
Sam John---Take what you get,
Cousin George Mike---A very
patriarchal THA. Only two wom-
en out of 12.
Kevin Powlette---At least
there is opposition to the PNM.
at least look on the brightside,
the PNM-controlled THA that
has been running the affairs of
our sister isle receiving billions
of taxpayer dollars that have gone
unchecked and unaccounted to
the people of Tobago for almost
two decades finally has a very
slight minority. It might not
change anything but it's a step in
the right direction to holding the

Tobago Forwards political

Devon Devon---Rum till I die.
Ryan Singh Steinberg She
was having a rough day, she read
the daily newspapers and got
depressed. That's an expensive
bottle of alcohol.
Jenelle Boochoon---In this
hard time to pay that money,

Natasha Lisa Lalchan---I

Dianne Bajoon---When will

Parents who have to line
up for hours outside primary
schools seeking to enroll their
children has been described
as outrageous and ridiculous
by Education Minister Antho-
Jason King---Welcome to
sweet sweet T&T. You now
knowing this Mr Minister? What
about the crazy fees parents has
to pay upon enrolment. Sweet,
Susan Montoute---Wonder if
this would sink into principals'
head because my son is six, been
trying for a year and still hav-
en't gotten him in a school. One
school in particular said he is not
intelligent enough to be in her
Debra Ann Baptiste---Let
parents also know that the
school's Infant Department can
accommodate only X pupils.
Therefore when five times that
amount register, the school can
accommodate only the required
amount of pupils per number of
infant class teachers.
Kenrick Bernard---So have
you been under a rock all this
time? This have been happening
forever, don't play like u ain't
Niecy Rob---People line up at
the schools that get the best re-
sults the same way they used to
line up for costumes for carnival
or to get in fetes or clubs. I lined
up and probably would again if I
have another kid. People line up
because all the primary schools
are not equal and they want to get
their kids in the best schools.
Angela Paul---Smh this thing
happening long long time. I
know parents who had to pur-
chase their own chair and table,
another who had to pay $500
to get their child in a particular
school. And don't talk about the
waiting list---is who u know else
your child will not enter primary
Ikeisha Ramnath---We line up
at school because some of us care
about our children future. There
isn't enough schools, the spaces
are limited, some schools are
currently under repairs and chil-
dren are forced to stay at home
and nothing is being done. etc.
Keisha Robinson---Yes, to
those who don't see it as outra-
geous come on...You line up to
get on of 300 forms printed only
to take 60 children. Just give 80
forms if so be it. Then you evalu-
ate these 300 children to try and
find the best. It's totally unfair
because there are some who are
shy and know everything. Arima
Girl's and Arima Girls govt drill
these children like wow. It is
wrong. I'm not saying you can't
ask them questions but to the ex-
tent some of you go, no.
Jillian Thomas---He cannot
blame all principals, that is un-
fair. Parents who want to send
their children out of their areas
or to schools they consider to be
prestigious schools are the ones
who line up from early morning
even though most of the schools
advertise that forms will be given
out at a certain time.
