Broomes challenges Ministry of Education on retirement
The Ministry of Education cannot set a retirement date for me!
With this terse comment, embattled principal of the Parkinson Memorial Secondary School Jeff Broomes dismissed a statement issued by the ministry last night that indicated he would be given a term’s leave from September this year and would go on retirement on January 1, 2016.
“I have written them outlining my time of retirement and I have indicated that my retirement will be from May 1, 2016. If they have a different focus that is their business,” he told Barbados TODAY.
“It may end up being what they want, but I will get a legal opinion on it first and that will determine what it is. I do not know why they would write something like that. Why would they put the contents of my private correspondence into the public domain? I do not know why they would do it.”
