By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology announced that with the expansion of the Education Upliftment Project, commencing August, almost 50% of secondary school students in Belize will benefit from the program.

In addition, 12 more schools are being added in the largest expansion of the program.

The Government of Belize and the Ministry also highlighted that it continues to focus on quality education for all students with 4.2 million dollars invested into teacher training and professional development in the 2023-2024 fiscal year.

In the 2023-2024 fiscal year, the Ministry also invested 22.8 million Belize dollars into services for students.

The expansion of the Belize Education Upliftment Project includes Julian Cho Technical High School and Bella Vista Government Secondary School.

Therefore, no secondary school student in the Toledo District will have to pay for secondary education starting August 2024.

“Education isn’t just another line item on our National Budget for 2024/25; it’s an investment in our collective future!

Empowering our youth with quality education ensures a skilled workforce, fosters innovation, and drives economic growth,” the Ministry said.
