COMMENTARY

Three newspapers in three different Caribbean countries recently carried reports about the challenges that youth in the Caribbean face, each basically making observations, which, with few exceptions, basically notes identical concerns.

Cayman Net News notes failure at school, increase in the misuse of drugs and alcohol, adolescent crime, and road accidents.

It further observes the kind of lavish lifestyles of kids from affluent homes, and stresses the need for teenagers to be equipped to compete in this competitive world as issues of concern.

The Trinidad and Tobago Express mentions the need for career guidance for students at the Secondary Entrance Assessment level to deal with unemployment among the youth, which stands at 12.1 percent in the 20-24 age group. The report goes on to say that at school, children do not have a career in mind even at the ages of 15 and 16 years, and some leave not knowing which career they would like to pursue.
