Anthony Murray said: “Presently, we have a school population of 288 students, but we have only been able to reach 144 online, so there is still a gap that needs to be filled. For those we are not reaching, we have put in a drop-off and pick-up system, but we are hoping, eventually, we can reach at least 90 per cent of our students online,” “Most of the students’ parents are hotel workers, and since COVID came in March, most of them are not working” External link

Chris Dehring said: “That particular UNESCO report also pointed to another way that is being used globally to educate our children. I am talking about the poor countries of the European Union and the United States, who are using distance education through digital television. So I urge the Ministry of Education to explore a nationally televised education system,” External link

Chris Dehring said: “It took us 35 years to get to 35 per cent Internet penetration in this country. How much longer do you think it is going to take to double that, and at what cost? It is what we need to be moving to do, and we will get it done, but it is going to take time and a lot of money,” External link

Chris Dehring added: “In the meantime, generations are growing up, and those generations can be served by digital television as well, with live classes and pre-recorded classes on their TV sets at home, and they utilise the data when they want to interact with the teacher in the classroom,” External link

Anthony Hilton stated: “We are not about to take any risk. We are aware, though it is an internal election, there are national implications, and one way to rebuild the trust in the party is for us to conduct a clear, above-board campaign so that the general population can look on and say, ‘Yes, this is the PNP record, and the PNP is getting back on track’,” External link

jamaica-gleaner Monday, October 19, 2020 3:42:00 PM CEST

Paul Bourke said: “The PNP has no moral authority to talk about buying votes because whereas it is not a strategic objective of the PNP leadership in by-elections and elections, there are too many in the PNP who believe that is the way to go,” External link

Dean Barrow said: “And, if we were to try to change the law to make arrangements to accommodate COVID-positive persons who wish to vote, not only would it be, I think, an extremely difficult logistical exercise, I suspect that the fears of those that are not positive, but who already have reservations or perhaps in two minds of whether they will exercise their franchise, those fears would become even more pronounced,” External link

Dean Barrow told: “Certainly proxies are out. It's already a hugely complicated, nightmarish system to administer the proxy system which currently exists, in terms of public officers, in terms of the security forces and their needing to vote by proxy. I don't see a trying to, in fact, extend that to COVID-positive people. How do you verify? That is completely out of the question. Now, I understand the argument about the constitutional rights, but remember no constitutional right is absolute. You can derogate from constitutional rights on an emergency basis, that is why in the normal course, Belizeans have every right when they leave the country to come back in. We are saying no, you can't except; you comply with certain things or you go into quarantine. That is a derogation from what, in pure form, is their constitutional right,” External link

Olivia Grange said (about Andrew Holness): “I have received the approval of Prime Minister Andrew Holness to proceed with plans for the interment of Toots Hibbert in National Heroes Park. I deeply appreciate the consideration of the Hyatt family in this matter. Toots is without question one of the pioneers of reggae music. He has even been credited with giving the genre its name. He is a national treasure whose humble demeanour and affable personality belied his towering global stature. Interment in National Heroes Park will suitably memorialise his contribution to Jamaica and reignite the unity in his family, among his peers and his fans which is required at this time,” External link

Antonio Guterres said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has now affected more than half the world’s women farmers with restrictions on movement, the closure of shops and markets, and disruption to their supply chains. Combined with challenges, including increased unpaid care and domestic work and rising rates of gender-based violence, rural women are bearing some of the heaviest burdens of the pandemic,” “Together, we must invest in rural women so that they have access to healthcare, social protection, and agricultural information services they need. We must close the digital divide and provide essential services to respond to the shadow pandemic of violence against women. And we must tackle the discriminatory land and inheritance laws and practices that make rural women vulnerable to losing their sources of income” External link

Wayne Robinson told: “The article said 90-odd per cent of boys at JC had failed English.

jamaicaobserver Sunday, October 18, 2020 7:35:00 AM CEST

Wayne Robinson explained: “We had boys with 12, 13 ones, eight, nine ones who didn't pass English. So you know something was wrong [and] we found what it was. They [CXC] hadn't received all of the SBAs and we weren't aware they hadn't received it, while we had sent it up. There was a glitch so we went and sorted out that glitch with CXC's help and made sure we had everything — and that's what reversed it,” External link
