Book Description

New Vision Civics provides a comprehensive civics education for Jamaicans of all ages.

Primarily created for students at the upper primary, secondary and tertiary levels, the book integrates many subjects: social studies, history, government and public administration, culture, media literacy, freedoms and privileges, the environment, and foreign policy.

The book pays special attention to youth development and empowerment, providing a guide to greater participation in national, civic and political life. Importantly, these young adults are guided to a trajectory of excellence and integrity, to carry the baton into the future, with a sense of urgency, responsibility, and commitment to the public good.

The book inspires, as it highlights the Jamaican journey, mapping the milestone achievements from slavery and abolition to independence and modernisation, and demonstrating the rewards of strength, courage and the tenacity of the tireless Jamaican people, as they redefined their destiny through self-reliance and determination.
