Teachers draw line

TEACHERS WILL NO LONGER stand for violence against them.

This was the clear message sent by president of the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union, Mary Redman, during a meeting of primary and secondary school teachers yesterday at Solidarity House.

She said the next step would be a meeting with Prime Minister Mia Mottley, Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw and other stakeholders on Saturday.

“This problem now has to be faced head on and we have to be the catalysts in that regard because we are the ones on the frontline. Since the beginning of this term, there have been five incidents of student-on-teacher violence against our members and we are here today to say not one more,” she declared to thunderous applause.
