THE BARBADOS UNION OF TEACHERS (BUT) is dissatisfied with what it says is Government’s lack of response to the viral outbreaks affecting teachers and students across the island.
Following a service at the Ann Gill Memorial Methodist Church yesterday to mark the start of Teachers Week, BUT president Sean Spencer said he was not seeing the desired level of communication or cooperation.
“The issue is, we’re not hearing from either ministry (Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health) about best practices in this situation. You’d think they’d be working together,” he said. (CA)
