Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - Veteran steelpan music song writer and educator Mark Loquan raised the valid question about the lack of information on and visibility -any at all - of the Junior panorama in Trinidad and Tobago. Mr. Loquan has consistently championed music education in schools.
Today, Sunday February 27 was the finals of the Junior Panorama, yet based on the total apparent lack of live media coverage - certainly online, on any Trinidad & Tobago radio outlet, or TV station - one would never know that.
Every year the coverage of the Junior Panorama has gotten worse.
This is a classic case of mixed-up priorities. There is nothing more important than the youth. In this regard, Pan Trinbago and the Trinidad and Tobago government have failed the youth miserably.
