Barbados: CREATE LEGISLATION

Teachers of the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) called for the Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training to create and establish legislation that holds parents accountable and responsible for the actions of their underage children.

Speaking during the near six-hour meeting which took place yesterday afternoon, President of the BSTU, Mary-Ann Redman assured teachers who would have called for the Ministry to create this legislation that this was one of the 22 recommendations she intends to hand deliver to the Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training with swiftness.

During yesterday’s meeting there was a passionate outcry from a plethora of teachers, calling for the Government to listen to these recommendations and the outcry of teachers as they are the ones that spend each day, many hours per day, with these students.
