Jamaica Gleaner In Focus
published: Sunday | September 3, 2006

Education - central to the National Plan
Jamaica's 30-year National Plan must be vision-driven; leadership must be transformational; there must be full participation from the people; and proper infrastructure must be put in place to develop and continuously improve on this plan. (Hall)

Dancehall and criminality
The thought of the 'Big Bad Warlord' running away like a scared cat from Babylon and finally being captured by them is the kind of thing that might provide some hilarious lyrics from now arch-enemy, Beenie Man. (Boyne)


In search of compassion
On August 26, 2006, I returned from a four-week stint of service to the thirty-sixth session of the Committee on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women CEDAW at the United Nations. (Simms)


Marginalisation or parasitism?
Global liberalisation since the 1990s has popularised the term 'marginalisation'. Marginalisation means that unequal opportunities reduce certain social categories of people to the margins of society and existence. (Buddan)


A Chiney-Jamaican in China
"You are what you eat," proclaimed Anthelme Brillat-Savarin in 1825, and he was probably right. But, a week in Beijing cheering on Jamaican athletes at the World Junior Games convinced me again that you are also what you speak. (Chang)
