British Children Sent To Barbados For Better Education

According to a UPI article, more and more West Indian families in Britain are sending their children back to the Caribbean to get a better public school education…

“Hundreds of children from families native to the Caribbean live with relatives in Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago so they can attend school there. They are separated from their parents for several months in an effort to get a more disciplined, traditional and structured school experience, the Sunday Telegraph reported.”

Anyone who has been inside a classroom lately in London, Toronto or New York City knows exactly what this article is talking about.

Now, where are the additional funds coming from for the increased foreign student loads in Barbados?

Oh yes, of course… from Bajans in Barbados. Silly us for even thinking anything else.

Aren’t open markets and borderless economies great?
