Educational Achievement and Wage Determination in Jamaica

Issue: 

Potential labour market entrants make decisions based partially on their expected returns. This paper estimates rates of private returns for public, private, self-employed, and own account workers, using the 2001 census for Jamaica. Pay differentials are identified to exist between public and private sectors, and the self-employed and own account workers. In particular, the public sector pays a significant premium, which is likely reflective of its assessment of the quality of education at the tertiary level, as well as the government’s significant investment in tertiary education.

Diaspora through Tourist Eyes

Issue: 

This essay examines the ramifications for Diasporic relations of US African Americans’ investment in tourism as a means of supporting Haiti’s sovereignty and economy. It analyzes the deployment of touristic tropes in prominent US African American writing about Haiti during the US Occupation, primarily James Weldon Johnson’s 1920 condemnation of the Occupation in the Nation and the Crisis, and two works of children’s literature, Arna Bontemps and Langston Hughes’ Popo and Fifina (1931) and Mary and John Jaspers’ Henry and Henrietta: the Shield Alley Twins (1933-1934).

Unveiling Child Sexual Abuse through Participatory Action Research

There have been few studies of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA). Many of them

in CSA prevention initiatives being left largely unexplored. To explore the

viability of CP within these initiatives this study adopted a unique and

holistic participatory action research approach with children in South
