We begin the show with a review of stories from ‘THE WEEK THAT WAS’:

  • STILL NO FUNDS FOR SHANIQUE MYRIE
  • SHAW PERPLEXED AT JMA OPPOSITION TO GCT ACT AMENDMENT
  • MALE JOGGER GANG-RAPED
  • SCHOOLS FAILING, ANOTHER REPORT SHOWS

The discussion segment will focus on two issues. In Part One, at 4:35, mixed reactions to Justice Minister Senator Mark Golding’s announcement that changes are to be made to the Dangerous Drugs Act to for the decriminalization of the possession of small amounts of marijuana for specific purposes.

 In part two at 5:05, are more Jamaican schools failing? We examine Educate Jamaica’s latest rankings of secondary schools based on 2013 Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE).
