Pay grouse


Share post:

Almost half of the principals at Government primary schools are acting, and many of them are not being paid what is due them.

That was among the complaints by president of the Association of Public Primary School Principals (APPSP), Dr Hyacinth Harris, during their first biennial general conference, which was held online yesterday.

“With the influx of several acting principals, a total of 40 [out of] 84 [principals] since January 2018 to September 2021,  . . . this association has repeatedly questioned the late payment of salaries. No principal should be asked to act in the post and not be paid the requisite salary.

“Throughout the past year and up to as recent as last month, the association received numerous complaints from principals who had started acting in the post as far back as September 2020, and a few before then, who had never once been paid a cent at that grade level,” Harris lamented. (TG)
