New criteria for ranking schools

A new set of criteria is being used to evaluate and rank Jamaica's secondary schools. 
The schools are being evaluated and ranked using a value-added procedure. 
Minister of Education & Youth Fayval Williams revealed on Friday that the new methodology will complement the traditional evaluation by the national education inspectorate. 
The new value-added approach was being applied to 150 schools, she said, with reports from the initial application being produced for 2021/22 and 2022/23, and "as the NEI goes through its inspection cycle those reports will become available."
The evaluation is primarily linked to literacy and numeracy, she explained.
