#JamaicaGleaner #RobertLightbourneHigh #School #CXC MAY 9, 2023: There is a stigma attached to the term “failing school” that interim principal of the Robert Lightbourne High school in St Thomas, Andrew Simms, does not appreciate. Nine years ago, his school was labelled a failing institution by education think tank for not producing any student who attained five or more subjects at the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) level. Acting Principal Andrew Simms believes label is unjust.
