Added Value?

Guyana’s Biggest Challenge to Adding Value: Past, Current & Future Brain Drain. An inventory of Guyana’s varied resources will surely result in us being one of the wealthiest countries per capita, at least on paper.

High Performers

Where do all the high performers in terms of intelligence go? We are very good at driving and grading our students, we make a big deal about their academic achievements every year around this time. Maybe it is time to determine where the top 10% actually ends up. Ideally this 10% should have found itself […]
