Teachers are to know this week when the Government will complete its payment of some J$1 billion owed to educators. The Jamaica Teachers' Association (JTA) says it will be disclosing the agreed timeline later this week, after it completes formalities with the finance ministry. Restive teachers demanded a meeting last week over the outstanding sum arising from a 2007 re-classification exercise. JTA President Dr. Mark Nicely said the meeting with the finance ministry was positive. The announcement of the payment comes as teachers celebrate education week.
