No war zones

Barbados Union of Teachers president Pedro Shepherd, and his counterpart in the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union, Mary Redman, had recently likened the level of violence in some schools to working in a war zone.

At the time at least three videos of vicious fighting at three secondary schools were making the rounds on social media.
