AS GOVERNMENT embarks on a commission of inquiry to investigate problems at The Alexandra School, board of management chairman Keith Simmons refuses to publicly discuss his board’s “strained” relationship with principal Jeff Broomes.
Simmons, who is an attorney at law, also stayed clear yesterday of commenting on the decision of Prime Minister Freundel Stuart to appoint the commission, except to suggest he would cooperate with the Frederick Waterman-led inquiry.
“I am told that [members of] the board will have to testify at the inquiry, but right now there is nothing to say. I will say my piece when the time comes,” he told the SUNDAY SUN.
Problems at the school are detailed in a 91-page inspection report submitted to the Ministry of Education in April last year, but the findings are only now being made public.
