The Education Minister, Ronald Thwaites, says young people in the country are now glorifying lawlessness.

Mr Thwaites made the comment at a church service at the Swallowfield Chapel in St. Andrew yesterday to mark the beginning of National Mathematics Week.

Mr Thwaites said the youth needed to be re-educated on the core values and principles of society.

Minister Thwaites says getting people to fully grasp the concept of Mathematics could serve as a means of instilling discipline.
