Bradshaw: We’re guided by Health
There are protocols to deal with suspected cases of COVID-19 within schools and all heads should be aware of what they entail.
That was the response from Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw to president of the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT), Pedro Shepherd, who in yesterday’s DAILY NATION blasted her ministry and the Ministry of Health over how they dealt with a COVID-19 case at the Ann Hill School last week.
An upset Shepherd said his union wanted to meet with both ministries to set up a protocol on handling such matters.
However, Bradshaw said yesterday after the unveiling of a bust of educator Hilda Ashton Skeene at the school bearing her name in Ruby, St Philip, that she had no time for those who wanted to cause panic. (KB)
