Williams, who is also principal of the Queen’s School, clarified not all the 964 students graduating will come into the teaching system.

The Principal says though Jamaica’s second place ranking on the brain drain index might be concerning, the necessary mechanisms for mitigation have always been available. She notes that the notion of schools seeing a mass exodus of teachers is inaccurate.

She had a message for persons currently pursuing their studies in education. Watch the report:
