Education Ministry Deploys Personnel, Says No Instruction Given To Close Schools

The Education Ministry says it has deployed additional personnel to schools in response to the industrial action by teachers. The ministry also says it has given no instruction for the closure of schools. Several institutions this morning remained closed as teachers failed to show up for work. Other institutions sent home students earlier than usual. Director of Corporate Communication at the Ministry of Education, Colin Steer says there are mixed reports from regions on the extent of the strike by teachers. The Government has proposed a six per cent increase for 2017-2018 and is going ahead to make the payments this month although the teachers have rejected it. The Jamaica Teachers' Association says the decision is tantamount to union busting.
