Discipline code soon

Deputy Chief Education Officer (for schools) Joy Gittens said the goal would be to have a level of understanding regarding punishment throughout all the schools in Barbados.

Gittens spoke to the WEEKEND NATION during a break in the Association of Public Primary School Principals annual general conference yesterday at Accra Beach Hotel, Rockley, Christ Church.
