Protestant Schools are fed up with current situation

SchoolWILLEMSTAD - The Protestant Christian Education Association (VPCO) is now really fed up with the current situation of their schools. Tuesday morning, the board, management and teachers went to Fort Amsterdam to hand over a letter of concern to Prime Minister Eugene Rhuggenaath.

The schools are faced with a major shortage of funds, which jeopardizes the quality of education and working conditions.

After some insistence, Rhuggenaath came out to receive the letter and then consulted with a VPCO in the chamber of the Council of Ministers. The Minister of Education Marilyn Alcalá-Wallé was nowhere to be found. According to sources within the VPCO, several letters were sent to Alcalá-Wallé, but she did not react to any of them.

If Rhuggenaath also does nothing with the problems in education, follow-up steps will be taken, says Jessica Westerink, director of the Albert Schweitzer primary school. She does not want to say what that means yet.
