In the dark


Share post:

FOR Elecia Weekes, enough is enough.

The distraught mother of a 14-year-old Springer Memorial fourth former is still scratching her head because she hasn’t heard from the hierarchy of the Ministry of Education regarding when her child will be allowed to resume classes.

In the last WEEKEND NATION, a frustrated Weekes complained that her daughter had missed more than five weeks of school after refusing to pick up a discarded wrapper when told to do so and subsequently being disciplined by principal Pauline Benjamin.

Weekes took to the airwaves yesterday to put her case again, saying she was still waiting to hear from Chief Education Officer Karen Best or any ministry official who could bring the matter to conclusion.

Please read the full story in today’s Daily Nation, or in the eNATION edition.
