Chaos in scheduling, timetabling and allocation of teachers were among the reasons Science Department head Amaida Greaves gave yesterday for not being able to fully teach classes during Term 3 of 2011.
Giving her highly anticipated evidence before the Commission of Inquiry into the Alexandra School yesterday afternoon, Greaves admitted to not knowing which classes to teach during the crucial examination term.
The veteran chemistry teacher, whom principal Jeff Broomes charged with not teaching for a term in a December 2, 2011 speech that caused his staff’s pent-up frustration to explode into strike action a month later, said she was not consulted about teachers who were coming in to teach science subjects; neither was she given the timetable changes made by Broomes himself for her department.
On one occasion she found someone else teaching one of her forms.
