Jamaica: PM Defends Government’s Approach To Tablet For Students Programme

Prime Minister Andrew Holness has responded to criticisms that the Government was slow in responding to the crisis in education brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Holness, the lack of inadequate electronic learning devices was the result of the massive disruption in their manufacturing and supply because of the pandemic. 

“I want us to acknowledge and to appreciate the point that Jamaica is not the only country that is facing this deficit of technological devices to enable remote learning,” said Holness in his St Andrew West Central constituency on Wednesdays.

The Prime Minister was speaking at the Drews Avenue Primary and Infant School at the handing over of 45 tablets to students.
