Ministry is in shambles
I concur with the sentiments of Lionel James in his letter headlined Jones has failed. I am a son of the soil, living in England for many years but have been following the Alexandra / Broomes debacle through the Barbados Today and am horrified at the behaviour and incredibly poor judgement of the Minister of Education in this matter. It seems to me that department is in shambles.
The plight of the teacher from Princess Margaret who had nothing to do with the fiasco but was uprooted from his St. Philip post against his will and with no prior warning to go and work at Alexandra took my breath away.
“I have every sympathy for Mary Redman and Patrick “Jack” Frost, an old school friend, in this nightmare situation and hope that wisdom prevails in the interests of the children.
