“We are highly illiterate”

POSTED: 08/8/11 12:37 PM

St. Maarten – President of Parliament drs. Gracita Arrindell said yesterday that she wants to encourage young people to pay more attention to developing their writing skills. “One of the biggest complaints I hear from employers is about writing skills,” she said during an appearance on the Radio Soualiga program For the Record. “We are highly illiterate in writing documents in English, let alone in Dutch. You have to start when you are young and pay attention to this.”
Arrindell made her statement after radio host Eddie Williams brought up that she had won a national essay contest in 1975 when she was still a teenager.
