Last month as the new school year got under way, Barracks Road Primary principal Maxine Coates-Brown made a plea for corporate Jamaica and citizens to help scores of students who were unable to connect to online classes due to a lack of devices.

“We have over 1,300 students attending Barracks Road Primary ..., [and] approximately 280 are on PATH,” Coates-Brown had told The Gleaner, referring to the State’s Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education welfare initiative. “Many of our students are of poor socio-economic status, and their families find it hard to cope in these very uncertain and challenging times.”
