Question: Do you think that parents should be doing more for the country?

- Clifford Lawrence, Kingston

"Yes! Parents should make sure to secure their children's education. Also, more parents should advance themselves more; they need more personal development."

- Chantele Henry, Kingston

"It all depends on the parent. Because some parents are not bringing up dem kids di right way. If the father not around, that's not good. If the father is missing that can bring a lot of problems."

- Millicent Sawyers, Portmore, St Catherine

"The parents dem need to change their attitude toward growing up their children. Because you have some children who are very rebellious and disobedient. What I see some parents do is to talk to the children as if they are big people."

-Marquis Campbell, St Ann

"Nuh everybody can do more. Sometimes is the money part mek people nuh even able fi manage themselves."

Question: Do you think that schools should be doing more for the country?

- Grace Thomas, Old Harbour

"I think the traditional schools are doing enough. My girls went to traditional schools are they did extremely well."

- Roy Smith, Portmore, St Catherine

"Every school different! Some schools have good teachers. For some teachers, teaching is just a job. Wolmer's my daughter leave from and Wolmer's is a good school."

- Shiyan Barnette, Kingston

"I don't think they are doing enough in general. If you look at what many schools are doing, they only look at academics. They don't put much focus on other things like morals and values."

- Ashle Folkes, Savanna-la-Mar

"I can only speak for one school and that is mine. I think Manning's High is doing a good job and I don't see what much more they could do."
