Teachers reject principals’ help
THE SCHOOL BASED ASSESSMENT (SBA) controversy is raging on three days before SBAs have to be submitted to the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC).
A Barbados Association of Principals of Public Secondary Schools’ (BAPPSS) offer to “mediate” in the stand-off involving the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) has been rejected by the BSTU, which yesterday urged its members to “stand firm” and “put themselves first” by refusing to mark the SBAs.
This latest development came as Barbados Union of Teachers’ (BUT) president Pedro Shepherd made it clear that while the BUT was supporting the BSTU on the issue of compensation for teachers, his union had not instructed its members not to mark the SBAs. (Green Bananas Media)
