Teachers meet at BUT headquarters
WITH LESS THAN half hour to go before the start of this morning’s meeting more than two hundred teachers were already seated at the Barbados Union of Teachers headquarters and more continued to file in.
In a departure from the norm, the meeting is being held on the expansive lawn in back of the building, rather than on the inside.
Teachers are using chairs provided by the union and some of them walked with their own seats.
The meeting is to bring members up to date with recent correspondence from Minister of Education Ronald Jones and to allow them to air their concerns about various matters.
Teachers, some of whom were on site from after 7 a.m., are expected to report to their respective schools after the meeting. (YB)
