Education ministry recruiting math specialists

The Ministry of Education is recruiting Math specialists for the upcoming 2014/15 academic year, to be placed in several schools across the island. “We have had to find over $150 million extra this year to get the programme underway, which will eventually cost more than $1.2 billion over three years,” Minister of Education, Rev. Ronald Thwaites, has said. The programme will see the specialists working as coaches and resource teachers in primary and secondary schools. Addressing the launch of the Butterkist National Primary Schools Mathematics Competition, at the Courtleigh Hotel in New Kingston, on April 15, the Minister said specialists are crucial, as “students are not mastering numeracy, which is evident in the performance of the Grade Four Numeracy Test and later in the CSEC Math results.” He pointed out that recruitment of the specialists forms part of the ongoing strategy the Ministry is undertaking, geared at improving the performance in mathematics at all levels of the education system.

5-y-o shot and injured in West Kingston

A five-year-old child was yesterday shot and injured by gunmen in West Kingston. The child was one of three people injured when armed men opened fire along Drummond Street. Police said that at about 9:00 am a father and his five-year-old daughter were walking along the road when the gunmen carried out the attack. However, police theorise that the child and her father were ‘at the wrong place at the wrong time’ as the attack was aimed at another man who was walking along the road. “The father, while walking along the road, heard explosions and, in an attempt to protect his daughter, picked up the child and ran,” said one police source. The man, the source said, later realised that the child was shot in her back. He was shot in the leg. The man was treated at hospital and the child admitted. The third man, who was said to be the intended target of the criminals, was also admitted to hospital. He was said to be in a critical condition.

This was stated by the Minister of State in the Office of the Prime Minister with responsibility for primary health care infrastructure, Luther Buchanan, at a press briefing, held on April 15 in Lucea, Hanover. Following a tour of the Salt Spring, Green Pond and Glendevon health centres in St. James, and the Noel Holmes Hospital, in Hanover, the State Minister said that, “from what I have seen, the largest asset of the Ministry of Health is our human resource, and although some of the circumstances under which our people work are less than ideal, they continue to provide good service to our Jamaican citizens.” The State Minister, who has visited about 30 health facilities in eight parishes over the last 10 weeks to get first hand knowledge of their needs, said the Government is on a drive to improve the health sector, particularly at the primary level.

Students must have freedom to choose Subject area – NSSC

The National Secondary Students’ Council (NSSC) expressed concerns after recent the pronouncement by Education Minister Rev. Ronald Thwaites, that students must sit a Technical/Vocational subject examination at the end of fifth form. In a media release, the NSSC stated that whilst there is a need to increase the relevance of high school education, through the introduction of technical/vocational subject areas, which is in a bid to meet the heavy demands of a skill based job market, we disagree that this should be imposed upon students. The NSSC has recommended that the Minister instead ensures that all students are introduced to a wide array of technical/vocational subjects during grades 7 to 9. A copy of the full press release can be viewed below.
