  1. Soon have to call in the Chinese them to teach..We did have road to make and couldn't make road, so guess what the Chinese come in! We want some Chinese teacher and Chinese police……We Don't want it….

  2. As I said before and I will say it again in anything that you are doing it requires leadership and Jamaica do not have it.

  3. The teaching profession is under attack by parents who should be working with teachers to get the best out of their children.

  4. This thing about "a soh Jamaicans stay" is unacceptable, because when them go foreign the vast majority of them behave themselves an fit perfectly in other people's culture. When these parents turn up at schools misbehaving the police must be call in to deal with them as a country we accept too much slackness

  5. In these scenarios, hold the parents accountable since they can easily be identified. Failing that, let them keep their children at home.

  6. Jamaica teachers should STOP putting their hands and people, kids. Let them leave, the teachers go to school and take out their problem kids. STOP BEATING THE KIDS. They should go to jail for child abuse. STOP CHILD ABUSE FROM TEACHERS.

  7. Children live what they learn…if this is the kind of hooliganism and hostility they see at home, they are going to bring it to school. Teachers are there to educate your child so that dem no tun out dumb and illiterate like yu..

  8. You think when mi a go school mi could a go home go tell my mother say teacher beat mi! U must a mad, first thing she a ask wah u do,
    A must something u do fi teacher beat u, teachers no just lick u so

  9. This is so sad 😢 Teachers you are worth more than this…if you have the opportunity to migrate please take it. Parenting seems to be a failed institution in Jamaica. Just imagine how things will be in a few more years.

  10. if them pickney cant behave them self and have manners them fi keep them home and teach them .that is some of the reason jamaica a face so much crime because some of the parents them uphold with them behaviours no respect for them pears sad sad for this beautiful island .parents stop support u children ina wrongs shame shame on u

  11. we want back wi sweet sweet jamaica from these thing mr government protect the teacher there r children who want to learn snd do better for them self and there r the one who want crime because there parent support them in their wrongs send them kind of parent to jail

  12. Homer Davis does not know the intricacies about of what he is talking about, the state of emergency. The 1st thing to commenced in Mobay and other areas, there is no opportunity for the poor people in Jamaica to servived from. So that is what he should be doing as the mayor of St,James, try to helped providing some form of employment for the poor people in his constituency.
    So how are going to control the crimes situation in Jamaica, when more than half of the now population .In Jamaica is not working at all, it is going to be worst of the continuous devaluation of the Jamaican dollar.

  13. Listening to what the minister of national security Dr Horace Chang is saying about the new prison,should be commencing in the next 18 months. I am not going to buy that at all,it is all political propaganda. Because the election is coming up very soon, so he is only using this to control the minds of the Jamaican people.
    It is so ironic that it is the same JLP party government as opposition at the time, when the British government was giving back some of the money. To build a new prison in Jamaica, which they took from some of the Jamaicans drugs money.
    It is the same JLP party government as opposition at opposing it,also all the JLP party supporters was thoroughly against the PNP party government to take the money and.
    Build that new prison, because all the prisons in Jamaica is very much outdated. They were built from in the days of slavery, I have been to all the prisons in Jamaica. So I know what am saying, none of the prisons in Jamaica is suitable for human beings to be living in.
    It is really surprising to hear the same minister of national security, who was a very strong advocate against building the new prison in Jamaica. If anyone out there who is with me, that the JLP party government is not going to build any new prison. Say yes,because they are not going to build no new prison.
    What is so ironic that they are trying to build so much new projects at the same time, I would like to know where are they going to get the money from.
    To undertake so much new projects at the same time, they are just trying to mesmerizing the poor people in Jamaica brains.Every sensible Jamaican would know that they are very much lying, they are not going to build no new prison. Because they are the ones who preventing the PNP party government from accepting the money from England, to build that new prison and. Now they realized that Jamaica really needed a new prison in any circumstances, because those old prisons.They are very much outdated, also over crowded, and not really applicable for any human beings to be living in such a very humane conditions.
    Now that the JLP party government is found themselves in limbo with the prisons situation in Jamaica, now they are running back to the same ideas. As the PNP party government really seeing the needs for a more suitable accommodation, for the prisoners. Because they are all human beings, because prison was not built for dogs and no man can predicts their future in life.
    Because nobody can tell what is going to happened to them in life,if anyone would tell the former minister of education Ruel Reid and companies. That they were going to jail, and might end up in prison. They would say that people is very much lying on them, and people hates them.
    I am only using it as a very prime example, when it comes to politicians when they got themselves into trouble.
    I for one does not sorry for none of them, only under certain circumstances, like self defense etc, etc.Because the same laws which they sets in parliament generally for the poor people in Jamaica. They never considered that one day the same unfair laws, is coming back at them, or their families. You must always remember that the same seeds you sow,it may come back to haunt you one day.
    After the JLP party as opposition was objecting to the PNP party government from taking the money from England, and building the new prison.
    As soon as they came to power, the same Andrew Holness who was one of the strongest advocate for building the new prison. He immediately went to England trying to convinced them, to gave him the money for the new prison. England told him no,because he cannot be trusted that he would build that new prison at all. Because he was very, very upset about the whole idea of building this new prison.
    So why are coming back so quickly for the money now, you must having some form of agendas to used the money on your personal business.
    So England objected from giving the JLP party government the money for building the new prison, because they are trustworthy. This news is very much shocking, and it is so obvious, or ironic that the JLP party government wants to build a new prison in Jamaica. I am going to see how the same JLP party supporters who was opposing the PNP party government from building it,so I want to see how they are going to reacts to this now.
    They are very much an hypocrites, although one JLP party supporter Bold Bogle. Is saying that I does not know proper English, there is nothing proper about English-language. It is only a preference of how someone wants to used certain words,but as long as the other person understand what you are saying. It is no big of a deal like how some people stupid ass Jamaican is elaborating about this English-language, like is something is going take you to heaven. Or it is going to save you from death the way some of them is behaving, with this stupid ass English language.

  14. I would like to know that the court ruled against that stupid ass indecom, that they should be involved into certain things. So what are they investigating, I would like to see if the PNP party won the next general election.
    If they are going to keep indecom organization around anymore wasting taxpayers money on nonsense, they are a waste of time according to the court. I would like to asked the JLP party government who implemented indecom, what is the main purposes of the organization and. What progress it has done towards the development of Jamaica, in whatever ways. Only to wasting millions of taxpayers money on nonsense, a organisation which is none productive to the development of Jamaica.
    Something is very much ironically wrong here, because the highest court of Jamaica rules against what they are doing is very much illegal activities. The JLP party government who implemented indecom organization over the police, they cannot even talked to them at all. What is so ironic they Chanelleges the highest court of Jamaica, by sending an appeal to England. Which Jamaica is not under the jurisdiction of the British government anymore, so it is so ironic that the privy council .Cannot over rules the highest court of Jamaica, because they does not have any form of juridical power at all.
    The government must realized that this organization is trying to over throwing, the constitution court of Jamaica. It seems that the highest court of Jamaica is very much powerless to order, the arrest those people in organization in indecom. For disobeying the order of the court,for contempt of the court.

  15. Jamaica is under attack by the government and the citizens. Yutes are not being discipline by there Guardians .that could of came and reason wid the principal by that parents don't that they are teaching the yutes is the way to solve problems is by treating another human and wen them grow up dem turn gunmen and get kill by the police. Then the committee say he was a good person. Jamaica will not change until the parents take responsibility of them yutes. Parents keep your yutes alive mek dem celebrate dem 25th birthday

  16. What Jamaica really need is God.
    With God comes love for one another. Jamaicans are generally nice law abiding people…when they are in other countries. Jamaica’s problem is: Once Jamaicans accepted false God Haile Selassie and quick schemes (quick money), it was over! The true God Jehovah is no longer blessing Jamaica because the people (most) have accepted a false God. Don’t believe me? Start thinking about when Jamaica started changing for the worst…it’s round about the time Rastafarianism was given birth (got popular). Remember God said: Thou shall have no other God but me. Bottom line, stop depending on Government to make meaningful changes…it will never happen! Jamaica needs divine help. Start praying people!
