TTUTA, call out errant teachers

THE EDITOR: I noted that TTUTA president Lynsley Doodhai attended the Tobago teachers’ get-together function at the weekend, where he reiterated his call for secondary school teachers to stop marking the School-Based Assessments from September unless they are compensated. I empathise with teachers on this issue and call for a quick resolution, whether through the legal channels or discussions with the Ministry of Education and the Caribbean Examination Council. However, I also want to hear TTUTA call out its members who do not supervise their students during class time. Those who are absent and late frequently must pull up their socks. TTUTA must also address concerns raised by parents about teachers who are not giving a fair day’s work, but give priority to paid lessons. What about teachers who do not follow the timetable? Instead they burden students with plenty homework from workbooks. TTUTA must remind some of its members that a fair day’s pay requires a fair day’s work.
