FAIR From Page 10
I The practice in our secondary
schools of allowing students to drop
mathematics and science very early
in their z.hool career," the Senator
said, "raises doubts about the quality
of the general education received
and has serious implicatiowu for the
future development of the country if
we are saying that science and
technology are tools for social and
economic development."

SEduation is r:nt merely certification, he
said, ber-ause if .v.d:ents are al.:-ed to take
only tho'e subjects in which it is felt they
"..ill get passes, they will leave school with
certific.-..s? and will then hb,.e to seek
education eisP here.
A Certain Minimum Standard
There should be, he sid, c tain core sub-
-ct. areas which are required, not ar
Iily for the pasin', of e:-nirn.ati n., but for
the maintenance of a certain minimum
standard for all students.

primary school students which
displayed many useful items man-

"It is interesting to note that the man is
always innocent," she said, "Adam was
innocent, Eve was responsible. They do
the same act, but it's the woman who pays
the price."

She said also that, in the law, a man who
practices sex with a prostitute is a
"witness", he is not punished; on the other
hand, the wonum is a victim, she is punish-
Physical MIulation
In the Caribbean, she said,- violence by
men directed at women knows no
boundaries either of age, class or race.
This violence, she said, takes the form of
physical mutilation and/or sexual aggress-

This viol-
I ence, she % /,
continued, may be direct or '
indirect, it may be -imned at an ,
individual or a group, or it may take the
form of institutionalized violence, e:.ploita-
tive of the lover classes in particular.

"E.ploitation is a form of violence," Mrs
Patrick said, "and it permeates nearly
every aspect of life for the Third World

Trapsated Into Action
These vomen, she said, belong; to the
humn-an family and this me.ns they must
always be in the consciousness of Sorop-
timists. The Soroptimist organisation is
committed to the advancement of ivomen,
she continued, and that co-rrm-iment must
tbe translated into a-tion.

I Mrs Patrick is Staff Tutor at the Uni-
Sversity of the West Indies St Augustine
SCampus in Trinidad, attached to the Health

Development Management Programme,
and is a Counsellor in the Rape Crisis
Society of Port-of-Spain, Trinidad.
Was The Recipient
In 1985, she was the recipient of the first
Caribbean Community (CARICOM)
Award For Women which was awarded.
for her "vork with women and children
throughout the region"

Governor General Sir Paul Scoon, who
declared the Conference officially open,
voiced the hope that out of the Conference
will come an even greater commitment to
pursue the aims and objectives of
Soropti mist International.

"To serve is to love," he said, "In
/ 7 unstinting and self-
S less service we get
joy for ourselves
P and we give

Happiness and hope

Because of the
high ideals of serv-
ice of the Soroptimists, he said, it seems to
him that the members of Soroptimist
International are well placed to make a
significant contribution towards the
fashioning of a united Caribbean in which
every man, woman and child will be able
to make the fullest use of their abilities,
and, setting aside insular prejudices, vill
be given every opportunity to serve for the
benefit of the region as a whole
The Road Ahead
For the people of the Caribbean the road
ahead in the immediate future will become
more rugged and inimical to progress, Sir
Paul said, because the world is becoming
increasingly complex and uncertain.

In these days, the Governor General con-
tinued, vhen family traditions are flouted,
when standards of propriety have taken a
low dive, when our children are crying out
for help amidst a torrent of drugs, child
abuse and increasing teenage pregnancy,
we shall have to turn increasingly to the
