Former Minister of Education Dr. Tim Gopeesingh, has identified teenage pregnancies and absent fathers among the root causes of delinquency in schools.
Speaking about social issues affecting young adults and children, the Member of Parliament for Caroni East said abject poverty, a dysfunctional community
and a lack of support, are the main reasons why some students lash out at school.
Dr. Gopeesingh is calling on the current administration to look closely at situations where older men prey on young girls, and is urging families to report these incidents, because they are crimes.
