I know someone who has a learning disability. It was a struggle for them throughout prep school and I made sure to offer them help because I know it must have been tough. And she was grateful because someone finally believed in her.
I've been a wheelchair-bound person from age 12. I am now 23, I have found it hard getting a job or persons socializing with me...It's been hard and extremely stressful, I even have depression because of it.
I once saw a man that was disabled and he had problems getting into a cab. Every able bodied person there pushed passed him to get a cab. You could tell he was frustrated...the cab driver assisted a pretty, young, able bodied lady into the car instead.
Do you think enough is being done to make schools safer places to learn?

Give each student a mentor. Allow the kids to bond with that person over the 5 years of high school. That person would be there for the child academically and to give support. In a nutshell kids gravitate towards young working adults aged 18-28 years-old.
Go in the homes and the communities and educate the residents about violence and how them being violent in the community and at home had a bad influence on their children. Because their children are looking up to them.
Sessions every week with students and teach them how to resolve problems. The positive former convicts that are focusing on greatness and how to help others, can attend the sessions and talk to them. It should not reach the stage of expelling a child.

At a tender age I was raped by an older cousin. I still relive the pain now in my adult years it's not something I think I will ever get over. I think it's important even for parents to educate their children as it relates to sexual health.
I was an adult according to Jamaican law when I had my first encounter. I protected myself because men will tell you that they are 'OK', but they are not, hence my reason for using protection. I was educated by my peers and guidance counsellor ...
I don't take chances, because I am aware of the many STIs in Jamaica and the world at large. I only have one sexual partner and we do checkups from time to time and we use condom all the time.
