Back to school

THE OUTSTANDING issues are the same, but it appeared to be a smooth return to school for teachers at Alma Parris and Parkinson Memorial Secondary Schools.

After engaging in meetings with representative the Barbados Union of Teachers Tuesday through Friday last week, teachers from both schools reported to work this morning.

Union head Pedro Shepherd said the steward from Alma Parris had checked in and reported things were quiet.

He admitted he had not received a similar call from the three stewards at Parkinson, but the assumption was that conditions there were conducive to teaching and learning as well.  (YB)
