School indiscipline continues to be a topic of national conversation. On the heels of the Education Minister’s visit to two of this country’s secondary institutions and his decision to remove 24 students deemed troubled students, from the Chaguanas East Secondary school, there comes concern from Criminologist, Dennis Brown that placing police officers outside of troubled schools, could embolden the students.
Mr. Brown however said the methods being used by the new Education Minister, in treating with the problem, must be applauded.
