Opposition Leader Andrew Holness has called for the setting of a public Military School for Boys in Jamaica. Mr. Holness who was speaking at the Graduation Ceremony of Prospect College, a private cadet school, in St Mary yesterday, noted that he believed that our boys need the guidance and regimen of such a school.
In calling for a military government partnership in education, opposition leader maintained that there is significant value in investing in our boys in this way as the qualities of coordination, timing, uniformity, neatness and orderliness and discipline are qualities that employers are seeking.
The Opposition Leader revealed that preliminary discussions to base such a school at the Up Park Camp ground, if the military had relocated, had been initiated and pledged that if returned to power he would seek such a partnership with the military to make such a school a reality.
In commending Prospect College on their work in educating poor Jamaicans Mr. Holness said there needs to be the forming of more trust schools like Prospect College as most of the current successful schools were the product of trusts or charities.
He asserted that Jamaicans who genuinely believe in education should seriously consider establishing similar trusts both to sustain current schools and to build new ones.
