Teachers to discuss issues
TEACHERS will be meeting today to discuss a number of issues that impact on their professional duties.
The Barbados Secondary Teacher’s Union (BSTU) is calling its members and interested persons to a mass meeting to discuss, among other things, environmental concerns at Combermere, The Lodge and Springer Memorial Secondary schools, and the marking of Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) School Based Assessments (SBAs).
BSTU President Mary Redman told the DAILY NATION the 2 p.m. meeting at Solidarity House was also an attempt for its executive to discover and clarify any challenges that people were having in relation to the union’s position on correction and data entry work for CXC without compensation.
She said the union found it an “unacceptable” demand being made of several teachers to sign documentation stating they would not correct the SBAs and this too would be the focus of today’s meeting. (SDB Media)
