The trial lasted 65 days.Presiding judge Justice Lennox Campbellset the sentencing for March 27, 2014. They face up to life in prison. Kartel was charged jointly with fellowentertainer Shawn Campbell, aka ShawnStorm; Kahira Jones; Shane Williams; andAndré St John for the murder of Williamswho was killed over two missing gunsbelonging to Kartel.The Crown represented by seniordeputy director of public prosecutions,Jeremy Taylor, and Crown CounselLeighton Morris alleged that on August 16,2011, Williams was beaten to death inKartel's house at 7 Swallowfield Avenue,Havendale, St Andrew over the missingguns.On September 29, 2011, Kartel and hisco-accused were arrested by Jamaica'sMajor Investigation Taskforce and chargedwith murder, conspiracy to murder and ille-gal possession of firearms.

aking decisions is a central part of leadership. Even when a leader uses alaissez-faire leadership style, the leaderremains responsible for making many deci-sions such as the nature of the goals that fol-lowers should pursue and the type of leader-ship style that is appropriate for the situation. Followers often look to leaders to makedecisions, particularly if they have difficultyenvisioning the specific tasks that arerequired to achieve a goal. Because of theimportance of decision making to leadership,you should understand how to approach deci-sion-making. To make better decisions, you shouldunderstand that decision-making is a processinvolving a sequential series of steps that areoften considered part of the critical thinkingprocess. These steps are identifying the prob-lem; analyze the possible solutions to theproblem; evaluate which of the possible solu-tions will be most effective and select andimplement the solution. These steps give you a structured frame-work to improve the quality of your deci-sions. The first three steps focus on collect-ing information that is useful when making adecision. The way leaders as decision makerscollect the information often depend on theirleadership style and the situation. For example, the autocratic leader may becomfortable with personally collecting theinformation, while a participative leader maybe comfortable relying on the informationprovided by others.Identifying a problem requires that youunderstand that a problem exists and can rec-ognize the root cause of the problem. Whileit is often easy to recognize the symptoms of a problem, the actual cause of the problemmay not be immediately apparent. As aresult, a good leader carefully evaluates thenature of the problem before considering thepossible solutions.All problems have more than one possi-ble solution. Effective decision-makingrequires identifying the range of possiblesolutions that address the root cause of theproblem. The analysis determines the way each of the possible solutions will affect the problem.The analysis should also consider the effectof the possible solution on the processes orsystems used by an organization based on theassumption that a change to fix one part of asystem may cause a new problem with anoth-er part of the system. At the same time, the leader mustremain aware that decisions have a directeffect on followers when evaluating possiblealternatives. After evaluating the possible alterna-tives, the leader should be able to determinethe solution that is most likely to solve theproblem without causing new and unantici-pated problems.

everal reports over the past decadesrevealed that the New York City publicschools have not been operating efficientlyin meeting the needs of our children. Public high school students' views andexperiences on issues ranging from aca-demics, safety and social services issueshave been depressing. As part of the solution to fix the ongo-ing problems, the chartered school conceptwas introduced and authorized under theNew York Charter Schools Act of 1998.These schools receive public funding butoperate independently. Chartered schools have been recordingsuccesses in their ability to provide a safe,disciplined, and orderly learning environ-ment and serve some of the city's lowest-performing and troubled students who canbe tough to handle. Class sizes also made asignificant difference in how students per-ceived their education with higher academ-ic performances. However, Bill de Blasio who duringhis campaign for mayor, made it clear thathe had a different, less favorable view of chartered schools than his predecessor,Michael Bloomberg. With the support of teachers unions,the mayor is already shutting out charteredschools from public school properties. Themayor is also blocking several high-achiev-ing charter schools out of its building, leav-ing hundreds of parents wondering wheretheir children will attend classes next fall.Although the chartered schools serveonly 6 percent of the city’s student popula-tion, de Blasio claim that the public schoolslosing their classroom space did not pro-vide properly for children with specialneeds. He further alleged that the charteredschools housing elementary school kids inhigh school buildings were not secured.The mayor was also quoted as saying,“Chartered schools are not the silver bulletto fixing public education.” Nevertheless, de Blasio should consid-er that 93 percent of chartered school stu-dents in the city are Blacks and Latinos andmajority of these students are in the top 1percent in math and 7 percent in readingand writing in New York State.It would appear that de Blasio move toboot chartered schools from city buildingsis illogical and not in the interests of thepeople he vowed to serve. Governor Andrew Cuomo is on theright tract by promising to pay the rent of chartered schools denied space under thecrackdown by Mayor de Blasio. The gover-nor also pledged to support legislation thatwould give charters extra money to leasenew facilities if they get the boot from citybuildings.We need to fix the education system inNew York City, but removing charteredschool from city buildings is not a smartsolution.
