The Parents Teachers Association (PTA) staged a protest action yesterday citing poor learning conditions at the schools.The windows of several classes are said to be damaged, causing massive flooding whenever it rains.According to President of the PTA Matthew Auguiste students will return to the classrooms today and Wednesday however if no progress is made on Thursday, protest action could continue. “The PTA has made a decision that the students are returning to school. That was also our desire to see them return to school. They will also attend school on Wednesday but we are seeking an audience with the officials in the Ministry of Education to let them know what our concerns are. They need to have an idea of exactly what the students are going through at the school. It is not easy. I take it that some of them have no idea,” he explained.He said the PTA also made a decision to continue protesting if the situation does not improve however, it is their hope that a resolution can be reached.“A short meeting was held with the parents outside of the school and they decided if no acknowledgment is received from the education ministry, more action will be taken. I am hoping that none of that happens because I believe there is always a better way to dealing with situations like that,” he said.Only twenty-two (22) of the seven hundred (700) student body attended school on Monday.Dominica Vibes Newscenter_img Share Tweet Sharing is caring!last_img
