BSTU heading to court
THE BARBADOS SECONDARY Teachers’ Union is taking the matter concerning the transfer of teachers from Alexandra School to court.
President Mary Redman said they had exhausted all other avenues and a decision was taken to go the legal route.
Close to 20 teachers were transferred from Alexandra as part of a system-wide shake-up in January 2013, which included the reassignment of the then principal Jeff Broomes and principal of Parkinson Memorial Secondary Orson Alleyne in what turned out to be a direct switch.
At the time, the BSTU said there were a number of problems associated with the transfers which could adversely affect students. (YB)
