THE ONGOING SAGA over the marking of School Based Assessments (SBAs) seems to be headed toward open confrontation.

And it appears too that the stance taken by the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) of not correcting the final SBA projects has had some impact.

The WEEKEND NATION has learnt that the deadline for submission to the Ministry of Education, which passed on Wednesday, has been extended to coincide with the April 30 deadline for submission across the board for the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC).

With that extension, claims are being made about the “unprecedented” depths officials at the ministry and principals have been “sinking” to get SBAs corrected.
