Parents asking about transfers
THE ONGOING IMPASSE at Alexandra School has led to parents requesting information about transfers.
This was revealed yesterday by president of the Alexandra Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), Carl Benskin, who said the patience of PTA members was wearing thin as the bulk of students had not had formal tuition since the teachers’ strike began almost two weeks ago.
“[Parents] are very agitated. Our children are still not being taught. We want our children to be taught. Let’s get our children taught. All like now somebody should be in the classroom,” said Benskin.
Pressed on the matter of the requests for transfers, he said he could not say exactly how many calls he had received, but he described the situation as “widespread” at the school which has a roll of over 800 students. (KJSP)
