Reports reaching our newsroom are that the Catholic Management in the Stann Creek District has begun doing a tour to inspect the teachers who are not complying with uniform regulations. We are told that if a teacher is found to be a delinquent in that aspect, he or she will be sent home. Minister of Education, Patrick Faber, commented on that matter.

“Schools have their policies and we are not going to be interfere with that unless we believe that the managements are being really, really unfair but I see nothing wrong with them putting in a dress code for teachers.  In fact, I believe that a very important aspect of teachers being able to deliver professionally is what they wear and having a uniform is no crime it is something that we’ve done for many years in Belize at schools both at the student level and teacher level and I support the Catholic Management if that is what they are doing.”
