Senator, Dr Ubaldus Raymond, on Tuesday touted the education quality improvement project (EQuIP) during the ongoing sitting of the senate.

The Saint Lucia Education Quality Improvement Project (EQUIP) seeks to address deficiencies in the education sector as well as provide needed funding for the expansion and rehabilitation of four school. Opposition appointed Senator, Joachim Henry, questioned the motive behind the government’s resolution to borrow a further USD $16.1 million from the Caribbean Development Bank for the EQUIP project. Senator Henry was forced to cut short his presentation after being asked to stay on the issue of Education and not on health.
