PLP Stands with Bermuda Teachers: Bermuda Can Do Better for Our Children
PLP Spokesperson for Education, Diallo Rabain, JP, MP
In the OBA's Bermuda, neglect of our public schools, disrespect for our teachers and ignoring the safety of our students has, unfortunately, become the norm. Today's protest may have come as a surprise to the OBA, but for the rest of Bermuda this latest protest was inevitable.
It is difficult to tell the people trusted to educate and protect our children that there is no money for the basic necessities to ensure them a quality education because Bermuda is broke. However, the reality is that money is seemingly endless for the OBA when it comes to the America's Cup and other projects that they deem to be more important.
Bermuda can do better and it will do better when we have a government that cares and invests in all of Bermuda.
