TTUTA: We cannot confirm the presence of gangs in schools

Head of the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association Martin Lum Kin says that they cannot confirm that there are gangs in schools.

He says that the Association has been hearing reports that there are gangs in schools however they have no empirical data on the issue.

He told News Power Now this morning that one contributing factor to the ‘alleged presence’ of gangs in schools would be the operation of gangs within the community and the influence it has on the youth.

He noted that those students who were underperforming at schools were most likely the ones to be involved in gangs.q
