Sunday Gleaner reporter Nagra Plunkett yesterday elicited the views of parents in Montego Bay about preparing children to return to school.

As a parent, how challenging did you find the back-to-school preparations?

  • Andy Campbell, Security Guard

    "The preparation was not too hard because my son is just five years old. Probably when I start pay high-school fee it will be more difficult."

  • Widmarc Orie, Taxi Operator

  • "It wicked, cost of living and education in Jamaica. Books are not supposed to be so costly. It's the worst year for me since me running taxi."

  • Anthony Mills, Customer Service Rep

    "For me it was not hard and not easy. I wasn't caught in the last-minute shopping that will see you spending more."

  • Cynthia Lawrence, Domestic Worker

    "I can't find money to send my three grandchildren to school l, not to mention buying the books that are so expensive."

  • Valerie Warlock, Newspaper Vendor

    "Rough, I wouldn't mind some assistance now. The school fees and books are killing me."
