JIVING AROUND WITH 2015: Cleric reprimanded during School Vacation to prevent Strike
Hey, it’s that time again when we look at some of the top things for the previous year… Ever wondered why this teacher was punished so long after the fact? If he was disciplined during regular school-time would it not have been easier to rally support against the move via colleagues engaging a concentrated protest?
Here’s a very popular meme I did on Facebook, this was July, it’s a wonder it was not deemed Malicious?
A teacher is being charged with misconduct after publicly describing the current Government as the worst the country has ever had at a town hall meeting earlier this year.
Dale Marshall, attorney for Anglican priest and teacher at Combermere School, Reverend Charles Morris, confirmed (July 16) that the controversial teacher had received fresh correspondence charging that as a public servant he had spoken out against the Government.
However, Marshall, a veteran Member of Parliament with the Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP), described the move as nothing more than another attempt by the Freundel Stuart administration to stifle criticism of its conduct and policies, and warned they would fight it vigorously.
The move to discipline the priest stemmed from his participation in a town hall meeting organised by the BLP under the heading of the People’s Assembly at which he also charged that too many church leaders were more interested in titles than serious theological discussion, and were sitting quietly in the face of societal decline.
