A contribution to the Education Transformation Commission

To produce this report providing youth recommendations to 'Reimagine Education' as a contribution to the Education Transformation Commission, UNICEF Jamaica and the National Secondary Students’ Council (NSSC) held a series of consultations with ten groups of high school students between January and February 2021. Participants included students with disabilities, students in juvenile centres and in state care, student leaders from various schools and a general representation from students in urban and rural Jamaica. A total of 74 students participated in the consultations. UNICEF also conducted a U-Report poll of 516 high school-age Jamaicans to gauge the views of a wider group of high school age children on reimagining education. Poll findings are also distilled in this report.
