KINGSTON, Jamaica - The opposition Jamaica Labour Party has hit out at the sexually expicit text that has been included in the high school curriculum and subsequently been withdrawn after howls of protests from concerned parents.

In a release to the media the JLP expressed its grave concern at what it dubbed the reemergence of text books that treat with human sexuality in such a way as to be a cause of concern for parents.

"In 2007 then Minister of Education Mr Andrew Holness ordered a review of all such texts and pulled from the curriculum those that had strong objections. We urge the minister to take a serious look at the review and approval process of these books to ensure this situation does not recur," the release stated.
