Teachers on job for exam
TEACHERS TURNED OUT in their numbers yesterday for work across the island.
They were at the examination centres to support their charges as over 3 500 students took the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Entrance Examination, also commonly known as the 11-Plus.
They were on the job at both the secondary and primary schools.
Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) president Pedro Shepherd said he made the point last week that his union would not disrupt the examination, which transfers students from primary to secondary level.
“I am quite clear today that was exactly what happened; it was a normal school day,” Shepherd told the MIDWEEK NATION yesterday. (LK)
