Prime Minister Andrew Holness says the performance gap between genders in the education system must be addressed.
The Prime Minister noted that as a Sustainable Development Goal, the gender gap in education is often overlooked.
The Prime Minister was speaking yesterday at a Sustainable Development Goal Lecture at the University of the West Indies, Mona campus.
He says if the gap isn’t addressed the country will have a labour crisis.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Holness reaffirmed Jamaica’s commitments to the international Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs.
However, he says the country’s Achilles heel is a failure to implement.
