Former educator, Andrea Thompson, raised concern regarding literacy in The Bahamas as she addressed the Rotary Club of Freeport yesterday during the organization's weekly meeting at the Ruby Swiss.

Noting that literacy in the government school system has its challenges, Thompson said that often times students are left behind due to a difference in learning styles.

"As an educator, when you have 35 children in a class, it's very hard to get to each and every child. In many of the government schools we have amazing teachers, but you have to gear towards that middle child, because what happens is the child that is remedial or learns at a different pace is left behind,"  she explained.
