Teachers flog Santia’s comments
A MEMO WAS BEING circulated to teachers yesterday condemning the comments made by Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw, during the recent Estimates Debate when she declared she would not tolerate teachers who flogged children when the law did not permit them to do so.
Citing a couple of incidents, Bradshaw advised parents to report such cases to the ministry and urged police to follow through and prosecute the perpetrators.
The memo, which was addressed to the minister from a group calling themselves ‘The Concerned Teachers Association of Barbados’, deemed her comments as “irresponsible”.(MB)
