Concerned Student started this petition to BCC Board of Management and

The COVID-19 situation is a dire one. It has affected all aspects of Barbados and is taking a toll on the island in many ways. Including education.

The Barbados Community College has valiantly attempted to use online classes in lieu of physical classes since the outbreak but sadly this is not working. Countless students are struggling with learning as they are unused to the online method in addition to the distractions of being at home, which are unavoidable. 

If the college’s semester was to be restarted, the students would be able to continue learning in the environment they paid to be in, once the island has made it through the COVID-19 outbreak.

The only issue would be the students who are supposed to graduate this semester. It is unclear how that situation would be dealt with but the Board of Management would most likely be able to come to a well thought out decision. 

Unfortunately, the number of students who are graduating is dwarfed by the number of students who still have at least 1 more year at the college and these students are at risk of failing the courses to get them into a position to graduate in the first place. 

Please, if you think a semester restart is the best way to help the students at BCC, sign this petition.

Sincerely,

                 A concerned student.
