Teachers form a sea of red in Queen’s Park
In a strong show of solidarity, teachers from the nation’s schools all decked in red have gathered in Queen’s Park.
The Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) summoned its members to the meeting after Minister of Education Ronald Jones declined the union’s request for talks.
Addressing the crowd this morning, BUT Public Relations Officer Dwayne Goddard said teachers were fearful and they want their issues addressed by the Minister of Education.
He insisted that the teachers’ concerns were bigger than the recent violent incident which occurred at Ellerslie Secondary between a teacher and student.
