SHERIANN NORRIS, the woman at the centre of an expletive-laced Internet video berating children, does not represent the teaching profession.
This is the position of president of the Barbados National Council of Parent-Teacher Associations (BNCPTA), Shone Gibbs.
Norris had also been part of the cast of CBC TV’s ongoing Out Loud talk show, but on Monday CBC general manager Doug Hoyte said while she had not been fired, her contract for Season 1 had been completed. However, he said he had found the level of vulgarity on her Internet video “unacceptable”.
Gibbs described Norris’ liberal use of expletives in the video, where she was defending teachers against criticism, as “unfortunate”. He was not convinced there were teachers in the system who expressed themselves like she did. (YB)
