Harsh criticisms have been made about the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) by the president of the Antigua and Barbuda Union of Teachers. Noting that he is not too fond of the examination body, the President said that CXC continues to demand a whole lot from regional countries, but deliver little. The union boss accused the regional examining body of taking advantage of teachers as it relates to them being paid for marking School Based Assessments (SBAs). Currently, there is a regional push for CXC to compensate teachers for marking the SBA component of CXC exams. Some regional teachers have also refused to mark papers or in some instance withhold the marks to get attention from the relevant authorities. The teachers’ union President also questioned what kind of representation is being given at the CARICOM level when officials go to CXC board meetings. He said the time has come for constructive dialogue on the issue.
