THE EDITOR, Sir:
I am calling upon the Ministry of Education to include some kind of programme in the Jamaican school system to educate the children of Jamaica about animal cruelty.
If there were some kind of educational programme in the school system, the teenage boy in the YouTube video circulating would have known that it is wrong to 'beat' a poor helpless goat. I am using this medium to call on the education minister, Ronald G. Thwaites, to act on this matter urgently. I am also calling upon the Jamaican media to use their power to help bring awareness to the people of Jamaica in any way they can.
