Tackle school board corruption

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Having read a recent article where the leader of the Opposition had suggested that our children were being used as guinea pigs for the roll-out of Primary Exit Profile, I hope he could put some spotlight on the matter of school board appointees.

Many school board appointees are endorsed by members of parliament (MPs) and operate like lackeys. Some MPs are aware of the dismal performance of their school board appointees, as these persons are, in many instances, not suited and have no clue about how schools ought to be operated.

The Opposition should take a closer look at schools within their constituencies and fix the nonsense and corruption taking place there.
