Sex in Schools
Solutions Barbados is disappointed with the Ministry of Education’s weak response, to the warnings from Charlie Spice of the Adult Industry Association.
Mr Spice noted that over the past three years, there have been countless child pornography videos of Barbadian school children circulating via smart phones. He noted that child prostitution was growing exponentially across Barbados, and that Barbados was on course to become the country with the highest rate of under-age sex in schools.
Solutions Barbados predicted a similar trend over two years ago, when the former Minister of Education allowed our students to have smart phones in schools, without the critical pornography filters. We have repeatedly warned of the obvious harmful consequences, since it was foreseen that children will try to mimic what they repeatedly watch. Solutions Barbados urges the BLP administration to consider the following solutions.
First, install pornography filters on all wireless routers at schools, resource centres, and anywhere where free WiFi is offered by Government. Second, install a password-protected pornography filter on every student’s cell phone when they enter the school. Third, start charging adults who have sex with our children. The cost to Government to implement each of these initiatives is $0.00.
