The Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA) is horrified at the reports of the gruesome killing of three school aged children, a toddler, and their mother from the community of Chapelton, Clarendon.
The association is also concerned about the growing levels of violence against the nation’s children and women.
The JTA believes that the perpetration of crime against women and children in our society is a cowardly act which must be repudiated.
The JTA condemns this recent act of violence and expresses condolence to the family and stands resolute in our support for law and order and a return to civility in our nation.
We will provide whatever support we can to the family as well as the schools to which the children were attached.
We call on all Jamaicans to do your part in protecting our women and children and not be hesitant in sharing what you know to solve crime.
