“Why did the dinosaurs die?” is a question most parents will eventually hear from their children.

The common theory is that dinosaurs couldn’t deal with climate change caused by an ice age, global warming, an asteroid striking the earth: take your pick. Regardless of your choice, these big, lumbering beasts, the masters of their universe, did not, or could not, adapt to the world as it changed around them.

Millions of years later, lumbering beasts are again dying slow deaths as the world changes around them. This time, it is not climate change that is doing the damage. The world’s economic and socio-political climate is changing very rapidly: today’s lumbering beasts are whole countries, businesses and governments.

One of these beasts is the Jamaican education system. More to come.
