Several teachers laid down their work today
WILLEMSTAD - Several teachers did not show up for work this morning. They received a call from their union Sitek for a meeting. The union has been in a quarrel for a long time now with the government about the developments in education here on the island.
The education sector, according to Sitek has to do at this time with problems concerning safety at schools, innovations and further education. There is also a shortage of teachers and the union has a problem with the legal position of the teaching staff.
It depends on each teacher whether they participate in the strike. At various schools there were no teachers present, which caused problems for many parents trying to find a place for their children to stay.
