BROWN'S TOWN, St Ann - With ..., 15 Dec 2013 [cached]
BROWN'S TOWN, St Ann - With a mother who was a domestic helper and a father who is still incarcerated Member of Parliament, Dr Dayton Campbell admits to knowing the power of education, and as a result, education will be his number-one priority as long as he represents the people of North West St Ann, he pledged Friday.
It is with that belief that the member of parliament has set out to launch several educational initiatives in his constituency, in spite of possible criticisms.
"I am putting forward the education of the people as the main thing I am focusing on," Campbell told people attending the launch of the St Ann North Western's Empowerment Programme Skills Training and Night School.
Campbell said that he was willing to risk his political future for the development of his constituents, many of whom sit idly daily, lacking skills to enter the workforce.
Campbell, who has already started the education programme in the constituency, is funding it through his Constituency Development Fund, in partnership with Red Stripe's Learning For Life, and Bars To Go.
Dr Campbell lauded the organisations for their partnership.
He said that 750 people will attend the night school, which will be offering two subjects at the CSEC level --Mathematics and Principles of Business.
With that number, approximately 2,000 persons will be benefitting from educational programmes implemented by Dr Campbell; currently there are 250 persons enrolled in a skills training programme which was launched earlier this year.
Centres for classes will be at Addison Park in Brown's Town, Discovery Bay All Age School, Runaway Bay All Age and Bamboo Primary and Junior High, to allow easier access to people in the constituency. Classes are expected to start January 2014.
Campbell pointed out that there were no limitations to the programme, except that persons needed to be a part of the constituency.
He said that the objective of the night school is to develop people so that they can matriculate into tertiary institutions.
"I am encouraging you to grasp the opportunity and make use of it," Campbell told members of his constituency who turned out for the launch on Friday.
He said that English Language and Office Procedures will be offered in the night school programme, following the completion of the first batch of students.
"We are trying to put forward a programme that persons can be in a much better position," he added.
The first-time member of parliament, while happy with the start of the programmes, said that he will not be satisfied until the people in his constituency are certified and employed.
"I am not yet satisfied; I will be satisfied at the end when they are certified and we can facilitate some of them getting some internship in the hotels and when we can facilitate some of them getting jobs locally and internationally," he stated.
Minister of Education Ronald Thwaites, who also attended the launch on Friday, lauded the efforts of Dr Campbell and encouraged people to fully utilise the second chance that they now have of getting an education.

Dr Dayton Campbell, the member of parliament (MP) for North West St Ann, has brushed aside arguments that poor people are being made worse off by the ban on smoking in public places.
"I am tired of hearing this argument about poor people. Everybody draws for the poor-people card to get in good favours with people," Campbell said during Wednesday's sitting of the Human Resource and Social Development Committee of the Parliament, which is reviewing the regulations banning smoking in public places.

MEMBER OF Parliament for North West St Ann, Dr Dayton Campbell, who is a medical practitioner, on Tuesday warned against the ill and wide-ranging negative effects of decriminalising marijuana, a proposal moved in a motion by his colleague Raymond Pryce.
Despite strong arguments from Pryce about acquisition of criminal records by young men for the smoking of a ganja spliff (a small portion), Dr Campbell cautioned that studies made a direct link between the smoking of cannabis and mental illness.
Campbell said a three-month study of trauma victims at the University Hospital of the West Indies showed that ganja was the most prevalent substance found in their bodies.
"Fifty per cent of the trauma victims had the marijuana in their system," said Campbell, as against 43 per cent of alcohol found in the bodies of crash victims.
"So we have this impression that it is drinking and driving that is the main reason for some of our road traffic accidents," said Campbell, adding that the data had proved otherwise.
The North West St Ann MP also pointed out that cannabis use before sex posed a high risk factor for the acquisition and transmission of sexually transmitted infections.
Campbell argued that the Drug Court provided a rehabilitation programme for persons arrested for smoking marijuana. He said if a person charged for using marijuana agree to a rehabilitation exercise, such an individual would not receive a criminal record.
