Minister of Education Ronald Thwaites (right), is all smiles as he browses Take Three Steps, a Vision 2030 Jamaica Reader. The book is an educational and motivational work written for younger citizens around themes distilled from the Vision 2030 Jamaica -National Development Plan.
The book is written by Collette Robinson (left), who is manager of the Social Protection & Gender Unit at the Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ). Representatives of the PIOJ, including Deputy Director General Richard Lumsden, presented printed copies of the book and audio versions of the Vision 2030 Jamaica national development plan to the Education Minister during a recent (July 8, 2015) visit to his National Heroes Circle office. Minister Thwaites said the book could assist in educating students about Civics and Social Studies.
