Minister Thwaites is also calling on the Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA) to ensure that such a group has its full support. He was speaking at yesterday’s final day of an Advanced Seminar in Special Education at the JTA’s head office in Kingston.
Some 50 teachers from schools in Kingston & St Andrew, St Catherine and St Thomas participated in the two-week course aimed at equipping them with the requisite skills to meet the varied needs of students in their classrooms.
Mr Thwaites says the formation of a special education association would help to amplify the voices of those with special needs in the Jamaican education system.
