Embattled principal Matthew Farley has delivered a verbal spanking to his Harrison College colleague Winston Crichlow for not siding with him on last week’s suspension of 265 students from the Graydon Sealy Secondary School, which Crichlow termed a distraction. An upset Farley told the SUNDAY SUN that he found the comments of the immediate past president of the Barbados Association of Principals of Public Schools (BAPPS) particularly offensive since BAPPS had taken a decision as far back as 2009, in conjunction with the Ministry of Education, to have a standardized dress code implemented across the school system. “We agreed that the hemlines would be two inches below the knee, that scarves would be banned, that cellphones would not be in schools . . . . We agreed on them across the board. The ministry was there, and we said this is what we want to happen in all schools,” said Farley, who added that “the fact that I enforce mine should not reflect badly on me”. Efforts to reach Crichlow yesterday were unsuccessful.
