Leeflang: “The Minister is destroying our education!”
WILLEMSTAD – The Independent Member of Parliament and former Minister of Education of the Netherlands Antilles, Omayra Leeflang said that her only conclusion is that the current Minister of Education, Irene Dick has destroyed the education system of Curaçao.
“While our education was on the right path. Minister Dick turned out to be the worst of the many Ministers of Education appointed by the Pueblo Soberano,” said the Independent MP.
Leeflang indicate that it is a clear sign that sport has been placed under the care of the Prime Minister and that a Director for the Department of Education, namely Martha Dijkhoff (also a former Minister of Education in the time of the Netherlands Antilles) has been appointed who will have to come up with a policy.
“How can Dijkhoff have been appointed? She was Minister 21 years ago and Minister Dick explained that the problems in education dates back twenty years. It seems that Minister Dick has totally lost control over the things that she is talking about,” said Leeflang.
The independent MP says that it is incredulous that Dijkhoff, which in the eyes of Minister Dick is the cause of all the problems in education is now director in charge of solving the problems.
