President of the Association of Public Primary School Principals, Ivan Clarke, has advised principals against compromising on discipline and teaching.

Clarke offered this advice today while making a brief presentation at the annual breakfast meeting of the Association of Public Primary School Principals. He advised the newly appointed principals to carry out their duties fairly and seek mentorship.

Clarke, who is a teacher of 35 years experience, said that as they enter the new school term, they must continue to improve their craft. Noting that Barbados was only blessed with sea and sand, Clarke argued that the nation depended on its people for development.

He suggested that fellow principals must renew themselves everyday, if they are to build a better Barbados, adding that following the Commission of Enquiry into Alexandra School, government should enact a New Education Act.

The president disclosed that the teaching profession was faced with the “daunting task” of 40 acting principals.
