Minister of Education Ronald Thwaites will host a public forum on the ministry's Facebook page today, commencing at 7:30 p.m.

The forum, dubbed 'Rappin with Ronnie', will provide members of the public with the opportunity to ask Minister Thwaites questions about the state of education in Jamaica.

In a national broadcast last week, Minister Thwaites said when he assumed office in 2012 the education system was "generally underperforming", despite huge investments by parents, teachers and the Government.

He noted that over the past four years, there have been significant improvements in education and training from which the public can benefit.

Over the past four years, Minister Thwaites has hosted several face-to-face forums with students and educators. The forum this evening will be the second one hosted by the education minister on Facebook. There will be accompanying reports on Twitter @MOEJamaica.
