The storm brewing over the Alma Parris School has been calmed – at least for now. Following three hours of talks between the Barbados Association of Principals of Public Secondary Schools (BAPPSS) and the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) at the Speightstown, St Peter school yesterday, teachers there have a “working document” with which they can function. This was one of the bones of contention between teachers and principal Valdez Francis. After going through the planning week last week and the first two days of term without timetables, which resulted in students being sent home early, it looks like the business of learning can go on in the near future. President of BAPPSS, Vere Parris, is optimistic that school can function as normal from today, but head of BUT, Pedro Shepherd, is thinking that Monday is a more realistic expectation.
