Teacher migration, insufficient resources main factors hindering sustained use of mentorship or violence intervention programmes for students

Teacher migration and insufficient resources are two main factors hindering the sustained use of mentorship or violence intervention programmes for students.

President of the Jamaica Association of Principals of Secondary Schools, Linvern Wright made the declaration as recent cases of violence among school children have again brought the need for preventative initiatives to the fore.

Speaking with IRIE FM news, Mr. Wright explained that over the years, many programmes have been introduced.

Education Minister, Fayval Williams has also heightened collaboration with several stakeholders, including the police to help reduce violence involving children.

Therefore, Mr. Wright admitted that the issue is not the absence of programmes but the ability to sustain them.

He said there are several factors which disable the effectiveness of these programmes.

Mr. Wright also stressed the need for more guidance councillors to help tackle the issues being faced more seriously.
