    A lot of attention has been paid to the infrastructure in the last year. Let’s see how everything holds up. If Bridge Street and Jeremie Street manage the rains well it would be a testament to how well the country has been run.

      This is why the children are going astray. Using the school as a replacement for your parenting, the school isn’t this safe environment you send your children to. If you are not attentive to what your kid learnt in school that day they may very well be worse off than they would be at home. The same thing you did with them all summer you do now. Treating your child like some kind of burden…black people.
