Barbados: Angry teachers to stage march

Barbados Today:-Having considered staging its own March of Disgust, the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) settled instead for a March of Respect at a yet to be decided date, to send a strong message to the Ministry of Education that its members would not back down on their demands for payment to correct school-based assessment (SBA) projects.

It was an angry crowd of teachers who packed the auditorium at Solidarity House this afternoon for an emotionally charged meeting at which they decided to not only defy the ministry, but also to fight fire with fire.

Redman stressed that her membership had reached the tipping point with a litany of woes plaguing the profession, including acts of violence and sexual assault perpetrated by students against teachers, and that it was do or die time for the island’s educators.
