JTA says Gov’t and school administrators should consider having protocol implemented, in light of recent bomb threats

President of the Jamaica Teachers’ Association, Leighton Johnson has suggested that in the wake of the bomb threats at schools over the past two days, the Government and administrators should consider having a protocol in place.

He suggested that Jamaica consults with educators in other jurisdictions which have a bomb or mass shooting protocol to get guidance on creating a similar policy.

Mr Johnson said the past two days have revealed that schools in Jamaica are not prepared to deal with a bomb if a threat turns out to be real.

He said the safety of all people at the island’s schools is top priority.
