Datapoint Jamaican/Domains of use: school

My choice of Value "Limited" for this feature must be understood within context. It is not safe to claim that Jamaican is not used as a medium of instruction in schools; neither is it safe to say its use is widespread. While English is the official language of the education system, in practice, many teachers use Jamaican to get their points across to pupils. This is informal and a personal response on the part of teachers to their environment.
Recently, the Jamaican Language Unit (JLU) at the University of the West Indies, Mona, has set up a bilingual education project in a few schools which uses Jamaican as a language of instruction, and teaches it as a subject.
