The Jamaica’s Parliament recently approved a new Charter of Rights with increased focus on the rights of our precious young ones. Section 13 (k) of the Charter declares it a right of every child, “who is a citizen of Jamaica, to publicly funded tuition in a public educational institution at the pre-primary and primary levels”.
Deika Morrison is helping fill a need for simple and effective tools in the classrooms. Through her “Crayons Count” Project she provides about 2700 basic/pre-schools with starter learning kits, to help boost literacy and numeracy at the level of early-childhood education.
