Jones Must Humble!
A FORMER SCHOOL BOARD CHAIRMAN who was on the receiving end of the Ronald Jones-Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) wrath says Jones should humble himself and meet the union.
Pastor Vincent Wood, of the Emmanuel Baptist Church, was chairman of the St Leonard’s Girls’ Secondary School board during a fierce 1992 industrial dispute with the BUT over environmental conditions at the Richmond Gap, St Michael school.
On Sunday he touched on the matter during a service and later spoke with the DAILY NATION.
Jones as Minister of Education has resisted giving in to the demand by BUT president Pedro Shepherd for a face-to-face meeting over issues that include violence in schools, appointments and environmental issues at schools. (AC)
