After continuous criticism from the Opposition over its scrapping of the secondary schools laptop programme, the Ministry of Education has announced the return of the programme which will see laptops provided to schools from the start of the new school year in September.

But the programme will be drastically different and is designed to reduce wastage, Education Minister Anthony Garcia said at a news conference at the Ministry’s St Vincent Street, Port of Spain, headquarters.
