BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC – Prime Minister Mia Mottley has pledged to address violence in schools by introducing several initiatives to stem what she says is “a public health condition”.The Prime Minister was speaking late last Saturday following a meeting with Police Commissioner Tyrone Griffith, Barbados Defence Force chief of staff Colonel Glyne Grannum, Education officials and others.The meeting was held in response to the scourge of violence in the school system.Mottley said that her administration is taking a stance of no-tolerance to violence in schools across the island. “There can be no tolerance in this country for any child to believe that they are in a position to threaten or attack any teacher or their parents or any adult in this country. If we allow this to happen, we will be surrendering our country to lawlessness and to young people who will not come to appreciate that their behavior is unacceptable in every form,” she said.“We have a duty as a nation to condition violence out of the next generation.”Residential facilityThe Prime Minister announced that the government will be creating a residential facility which caters to troubled children, and added that within the next two weeks, the Government will be forming a group or committee that will assist in stabilizing and managing of at-risk children.She also declared that a legislative framework was in the works whereby the chief education officer, in the absence of the parent can consent to intervention for a student. This consent will be given following discussions with the student’s principal, social workers, and psychologists.Mottley revealed that less than 200 students were guilty of acts of violence or deviant behavior in schools and argued that the initiatives proposed by the Ministry of Education sought to protect troubled students.More guidance counselorsMeanwhile, Minister of Education Sanita Bradshaw, revealed that an additional guidance counselor will be assigned to the schools deemed at risk. She indicated that the safety officers assigned to the terminals and school routes were expected to work with guidance counselors in identifying students that needed attention.Bradshaw also announced that social workers will be entering into the primary institutions for the first time to address issues of violence and deviance from an early age.

Lukas Fabianski set the tone, with a clean sheet earning the Swansea shot stopper nine points, Raheem Sterling top scored with 13, and captain Dele Alli saw his six points doubled to 12 as ‘Salford Reds’ finish in eighth with 739 overall.Just behind, on the same points, is Konstantinos Digonis, whose 65 point haul also saw him leapfrog his way into the top ten. Tottenham’s Harry Kane (captain) top scored for his side with 16 points, suitably backed up by Sterling (13 points) and Swansea full back Kyle Naughton (nine).A little further back in 12th, on the cusp of this weekends top score and the top ten, is Algosport CEO Leigh Herdman who charged to 68 points. Again it was Kane (captain, 16), Sterling (13) and Fabianski (nine), securing the main bulk of the points, backed up by Mohamed Salah (seven) and Richarlison (six).A full round of midweek fixtures closes November for the Premier League, with Everton and West Ham due to meet at Goodison Park in a massive clash at the bottom of the table.Fresh of the back of their four goal heroics at home, Southampton travel to table toppers Manchester City, with Watford due to host second placed Manchester United.Elsewhere, struggling and managerless West Bromwich Albion welcome Newcastle, who have four straight defeats, to The Hawthorns, and Huddersfield Town take a trip to The Emirates to face Arsene Wenger’s side.
