| Tackle the scourge of crime
THE EDITOR, Sir: I STRONGLY believe that the necessary actions needed to tackle the scourge of crime have somewhat eluded us.
Held by police without cause
THE EDITOR, Sir: CHRISTOPHER GIBBS, who was taken into custody on Thursday, May 13, 2004 by members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, was released on May 19, 2004 without being charged for any offence.
Respect life, love each other
THE EDITOR, Sir: LIFE SHOULD be respected no matter what we are going through. We should not resort to murder.
We are all to blame for schools' status
THE EDITOR, Sir: THE ANALYSIS presented by Dr. Minott and his team with regards to the performances of our local secondary institutions should be of grave concern to every Jamaican.
Unfair analysis of schools
THE EDITOR, Sir: DR. MINOTT'S analysis of fifth form students in 16 core subjects and subsequent ranking of the island's secondary schools have generated much debate.
Repay your student loans
THE EDITOR, Sir: I READ in the paper dated May 17, 2004, 'NCU head wants SLB recipients to be bonded.' I think it is a good idea. Many students upon completion of their studies opt to migrate for better paid jobs.
Students and road safety
THE EDITOR, Sir: IN ORDER to ensure that our youth do not enter the afterlife ahead of time, serious efforts should be made to bring more discipline to their daily routine, which for some involves ignoring basic road safety measures.
