A waste


Share post:

Minister of Education Ronald Jones has added his voice to the lament on the number of young men who are becoming involved in crime.
Days after a teenager was charged with a shooting death, Jones highlighted the state of the males during a ceremony to hand over scholarships to 14 students at the Barbados Community College who are heading off to four Canadian colleges.
“A country must speak about the waywardness of its citizens, particularly about its young people. About its young men who should be going off to Canada to St Lawrence College to study, and let their light so shine that they will illuminate the world other than be cynics and caught up in foolishness; wasteful energies and time,” he said yesterday.
Three of the scholars are boys, which he said represented only 21 per cent of the whole. (YB)
