Jones: Early or else
Minister of Education of Ronald Jones has put parents on notice that their children must get to school early or pay full bus fare.
Last night Jones said that there were media reports of children getting to school around 9:30 a.m. but that would soon come at their own expense.
“This country pays a high price and heavy cost for education. We put in place in 2008 a free bus fare regime which is costing us six or seven million dollars a year.
“Bus-hopping must cease, and therefore, with the support of Cabinet, very soon we are going to give you a deadline when you can’t take the public transportation system, otherwise you are going to have to pay,” Jones said.
