NCPTA: Focus on the students
AS THE IMPASSE between teachers represented by the Barbados Secondary Teachers Union (BSTU) and principal Jeff Broomes continues at the Alexandra School, concern has been mounting about the impact on students and their education.
That’s one of the main issues which the National Council of Parent-Teacher Association (NCPTA) says it’s focusing on right now.
Wearing the hats of NCPTA president for the past two years and former Alexandra student before it became co-ed, Rhonda Blackman, who is also a teacher at Sharon Primary School, spoke to the Nation’s Associate Editor Dawne Parris about what should have happened, is happening, and needs to happen for students at the St. Peter institution.
The discussion also came a week before the NCPTA?chooses a new executive in its elections on Saturday.
