Watch this Public Service Announcement video please. The star is Kymberley Walcott, a Jamaica High School graduate and one of the best people I have ever worked with.
The video on the impact of closing schools on kids is quite moving. It was done by The Network for Public Education.
Here is Kym's post:
Stop closing our schools!
As a person who attended a high school that was denigrated and then shut down by the government, It was an honor to be given a mic by the Network of Public Education to publicly defend my alma mater, my teachers who wanted nothing but for each of their students to succeed, and the right for all to have a just and equal public education experience.
Jamaica High School no longer physically exists, but the experiences I along with so many other students had in that institution are irrevocable and should not be forgotten.
Please help me in sharing this message! https://networkforpubliceducation.org/2018/05/10398/
Special thanks to Shoot4Education for producing this video and making this all possible!
