    QUOTE AUTHOR GOES HERE The Jamaica Teachers' Association (JTA) says it cannot call for guidance counsellors to be better trained to deal with gay students as buggery remains illegal.

    Norman Allen, who heads the union that represents guidance counsellors, made the comment in reaction to reports that several of the approximately 800 guidance counsellors in schools are refusing to help students identified as gay or lesbian.

    According to Allen, guidance counsellors face a difficulty in responding to those students when Jamaica has laws which make homosexual acts illegal.
