Public schools have been disrupted as teachers fail to report for duties this morning as part of an islandwide protest over wages. The teachers are upset about the unsettled wage negotiation with the Government and an insistence by the Finance Ministry that it cannot make a better offer. 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. This morning, only two teachers turned up at the Holy Childhood High School in St Andrew. Parents have since been asked to pick up their children. In portmore Ascot High is among the schools that have been closed. At the Montego Bay Infant School there was no teacher. Students of Anchovy Primary in St James have been sent home and so too have students of Jesse Ripoll Primary in Kingston.
