With classes at Government-run schools set to resume today public sector teachers have declared that they are several pressing matters they want the Government to address early in the academic year. They include the employment of teachers to replace those on study leave. According to the Jamaica Teachers' Association, JTA, nearly two thousand teachers have been granted leave by the Education Ministry and this has implications for the smooth running of schools. JTA President, Doran Dixon, said that the reality is that the system cannot run without replacements. Some six hundred thousand students at all levels will be attending educational institutions this school year.
