The Progressive Labour Party is disappointed to hear that the failed OBA government is playing politics with our teachers. The news that the OBA walked back on their commitments to our teachers is beyond the pale.
Our teachers need support, not broken promises. Our teachers need services that will help them better educate our students including resources, but, also specialized training and certification opportunities and resources to advance their careers and better serve our students.
The OBA has forgotten our public schools. Their deep cuts to the public education budget has resulted in teachers being mistreated, but, also mould and vermin in our schools. Bermuda can do better than an OBA government that plays musical chairs with the Education Minister, breaks promises to our teachers and cuts financial aid for our students seeking higher education.
