STUDENTS from 61 schools who qualify for the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH) will benefit from a $200-million transport subsidy during the new school year, which starts next Monday.
Minister of Labour and Social Security Derrick Kellier, who made the announcement during a press briefing at the Office of the Prime Minister in Kingston on Wednesday, said the 61 schools selected have had a history of "extreme absenteeism" because of dire economic challenges faced by parents.
The move, said the minister, was timely in light of the recent increase in bus fares, and will be implemented in collaboration with the Ministry of Education.
While students who attend school in the Corporate Area, sections of St Catherine and rural St Andrew will pay a fare of $20 on Jamaica Urban Transit Company buses, students in rural Jamaica will not have this benefit and Kellier said a special effort will be made to assist these children.
