Share post:

The Ministry of Education is enforcing its zero tolerance policy regarding children’s mandatory school attendance.
Twenty-two Barbadian parents will find out first-hand how serious the ministry is, when they attend court over the next month to respond to allegations of not sending their children to school regularly.
The ministry has lodged 18 such cases in one area alone, with parents expected to appear before magistrate Barbara Cooke-Alleyne in the District “E” Magistrates’ Court today at 9:30 a.m. and again next Monday.
The other four cases are scheduled to be heard before Magistrate Graveney Bannister in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court on September 13.
And the ministry has the full backing of the National Council of Parent Teachers Association (NCPTA).
