Prime Minister Andrew Holness announced on Tuesday that his administration will be constructing a school to train entertainers and musicians.
Mr Holness asserted that this was necessary to help halt the deterioration of the Jamaican society.
He was speaking at a ground-breaking for Jamaica's first Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics, STEAM, Academy in Bernard Lodge St Catherine.
The government plans to build a total six STEAM schools at a total cost of US$133 million.
An institution for the Arts will also be constructed.
Mr Holness said this institution will help empower young people.
