Head not dwelling on BSTU

Social Share

PRINCIPAL JEFF Broomes said yesterday he had hardly given the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) a thought since the bitter dispute at Alexandra Secondary.

And as for the issue of paying teachers for marking school-based assessments (SBAs), he said it was a ministry issue and should be dealt with at that level.

“People find it hard to believe when I say it but I don’t think about [union president] Mary Redman and the BSTU; I don’t have the time,” he said.

“That [the SBAs] is a ministry issue, above my pay grade. I had no issues here at Parkinson. Not one of my teachers objected to marking the SBAs and I don’t see why they should have.”
