Instead of deceiving ourselves about the English language competency of most Jamaicans, we should face the facts. English is not being taught efficiently. That's largely because the powers that be assume that the mother language of most Jamaicans isn't actually a language. They insist that it's nothing but a 'corruption' of English. Even so, they don't seem to know how to cure the disease.
If it's any consolation, having two 'Gleaners' is a good thing. It gives the consumer choice. Monopolies have a way of becoming very arrogant.
