Education Ministry receives reports about dispute between Central High teachers and chairman

A teacher at Central High School as well as MP Mike Henry
 
The Ministry of Education has received reports from teachers and the Chairman of Central High School in Clarendon amid a deepening rift between both parties.
 
Member of Parliament for Central Clarendon Mike Henry made the disclosure on Wednesday.
 
Dressed in black and bearing placards, the Central High teachers continued to protest outside the school Wednesday, expressing their displeasure with the chairman's leadership and vowing now to "back down" until he is removed. 
 
The teachers, who have been protesting for several weeks, staged a sit-in on Tuesday.
 
They say their complaints have not been addressed by the Ministry of Education and their MP Mike Henry.
 
Mr. Henry responded on Wednesday, noting that he has received word from the Ministry of Education that it is in receipt of reports from both the teachers and chairman of Central High. 
 
The Member of Parliament urged the teachers to be patient. 
 
"I can't keep appointments until I know what the policies are addressing it or the issues that need to be addressed and the code of ethics that relates to the Ministry of Education and the chairmanship and boards. So I'm waiting on all of that for a speedy recovery of the issues, and I would have hoped that what they would have all waited on is those issues to be looked at..." he declared.
