Don't lump us with sick-out teachers
THE EDITOR, Sir:
The Government has sent out a circular stating that "only Labour Day school will be closed for". In addition, summer holidays, which should begin July 6, will be taken "Monday, July 10". July 10 is not a Monday but a Tuesday.
My school was in session during the sick-out by teachers, so I don't see how schools that were in session are not getting the required break.
To date, the Jamaica Teachers' Association has not commented on the circular. Teachers are being dealt a raw deal and treated like dirt.
