Parents fed up with school woes


Another day, another school closure, and parents say more disruption for their lives.

And yesterday some parents at Luther Thorne Memorial Primary School joined those of Lawrence T. Gay Memorial, who complained Thursday night, in expressing their frustration at the school closures.

The parents are fed up that environmental problems keep closing schools across Barbadoos, and they have to leave their jobs to collect their children, in so doing endangering their continued employment. They are vex, too, that when the school is closed over a prolonged period, as has been the case of the 496 students attending Lawrence T. Gay since Wednesday, they have to stay home from work or find someone to look after their children, and this can cost them money.

Besides the problems they face, the parents are concerned that their children’s education is being placed in jeopardy with these closures and want the situation to stop.
