more news right after these messages welcome back continuing the news the
Supreme Court is to hear the application for judicial review of the case against
former Education Minister rural Reed and head of the Caribbean maritime
university CMU professor Fritz Pinnock today lead attorney for mr. Reed and
professor Pinnock Hugh Wellman filed the application in October shortly after the
men were charged the two accused are challenging the decision by the
financial investigation division F ID to lay charges against them they are

in a corruption probe at the CMU and the Education Ministry the five who were
granted bail when they appeared in the st. Andrew parish court on October 10
are scheduled to return on January 23 opposition spokesman on education and
training Peter bunting is suggesting that the way education is funded and the
areas of focus need to be revamped he was speaking at a business luncheon in
Mandeville on Tuesday firstly mr. Buntyn believes that the priorities in the
allocation of resources to educational institutions should be changed he feels
most of the resources should be placed at the early childhood level rather than
at the tertiary level which is currently the case that was upside down one set of
priorities because the truth automata is we must prioritize the resources for the
early childhood then the primary then the secondary and finally the tertiary because you have to start with the
foundation he is also calling on the Education
Ministry to ensure that at least one trained teacher is assigned to each
early childhood institution ECI he says the policy was disconnect discontinued
after a trained ECI teacher who was employed locally migrated mr. Bolton
argues that while ECI is upgrade their schools and other infrastructure to meet
the certification standards stipulated by the early childhood Commission trade
teachers are also needed to enhance the learning process I appeal to continue
somehow this program where the resources are to be fought to keep at least one
trained early childhood specialist teacher in these basic schools as long
as we keep them operating with students it don’t make sense for us to return to
where we were educating children about disaster preparedness is the latest
focus on the government’s agenda speaking at a recent disaster
preparedness town hall meeting in Falmouth Trelawney Minister of Local
Government and Community Development Desmond McKenzie said the move can help
save lives in September the community of August Torrance and Andrew was rocked
with grief when a nine year old boy was swept away by floodwaters for tragedies
like that local government and Community Development Minister Desmond McKenzie
believes it’s critical to educate children about disaster preparedness if
education on disaster to young people was being force unto them in the way
that it showed that little boy up here in st. Andrew would not have been
walking across an open stream during torrential rains
mr. Mackenzie argues that too many of the nation’s children are being taken
away by floodwaters and the lack of public information is the cause
therefore other countries of government we have a responsibility to take
disaster to the smallest Jamaican child so that they can start to learn how to
respond to disaster come next year mr. Mackenzie says the government will
undertake a public education Drive on disaster preparedness and we’re going to
be starting a public education come January on the do’s and the don’ts are

  4. Raleigh Beersingh says:

    Mr Prime Minister Sir, why are we the people of Eastern St.Thomas being ignored and being treated like "prodigal, Bastard clildren?" Is it because there is a PNP Member of Parliament representing us? St. Thomas has always been the poorest and most neglected Parish for many years, now it is even worse since the CLOSURE of the Sugar FACTORY in Duckenfield. Nothing has been put in place for the people there to earn a living. The people are suffering, children have to go to school. Small businesses in the area are on the verge of closing. Sir, we are appealing to you to do something for us before it's too late.

  5. Blair Boyd says:

    I am really glad that these things been happening to those people for too long, and them cannot realized by now. That the politicians is only using them for their own selfish gained,after the election.
    They just ignored the voices of the people who put them in office, if they cannot learned by this. Is when they are going to learned,

  12. Eric Watson says:

  13. Rajainey Bernard says:

    These politicians are nothing but fake, I for one think they take people of the Bath Division for an idiot. Young people like me will never vote because 23 years of one sided party in Eastern St.Thomas and no development.

  14. Jackie Smith says:

    The violence in Jamaica is being noticed all around the world and it certainly looks terrible and gives people world wide a very bad impression about Jamaica and Jamaicans .1,200 murders for 2019 and only the second largest Caribbean island with a population of approx 3 million people is mind blowing. In comparison to the population of Britain 67.530.172 with just782 homicides its hard to believe the difference. But most of the blame must go to the Jamaican government who year after year is a silent force, doing nothing but talking, and talk is cheap. Bob Marley as well as being a great musician and writer was a great thinking he said a hungry man is a angry man. Most of people in Jamaica are hungry and angry especially when they watch these foreign business come to into their country making fortunes and putting noting back and the government does nothing about it fabulous hotels build in Jamaica on Jamaican soil charging there foreign visitors mega US dollars to stay in these luxurious places while pay the Jamaican staff Jamaican dollars wage, which amounts to pea nuts because again the government decided to keep Jamaican currency which is not even accepted anywhere abroad. On wages that can barely make ends meet and having to find their own transportation at added cost. Jamaicans are angry they are still in slavery and the government is working for the slave masters. A decent minimum wages is needed, in compassion to the US Dollars made in these hotels monies need to be circulated in the country instead of it being only circulated in the hotels and back into the USA and what ever other foreign county the hotel belongs to. These companies should be paying monies into a fund that maintain the roads and pathways of Jamaica yearly.. In the Uk the government looks after its people with all types of benefits such as Child allowance, sickness benefits, unemployment benefits, housing benefits, NHS, the list goes on and on. England as now left the European union as it feels it can better help its own people by doing so. Jamaica Government has to learn to organise its own house putting it's family of Jamaicans first

  15. Grace Abel says:

    I pray and hope it is fixed and the relevant authorities noh wait until a life or lives are lost….because dem stay soh…
