BNTU: school preparation is not teachers responsibility

Often times, teachers take out a substantial amount of money out of their pockets to prepare their classes for the beginning of the school year, which is in September. This week Belize National Teachers Union, BNTU sent out a memorandum to teachers advising them not to continue to do so. Love News spoke to Elena Smith, President of the Belize National Teachers Union, about the memorandum.

Elena Smith, BNTU President: “Well the memo was sent out to teachers so to our members. Again when we had our last round of membership meetings in January,February, March our teachers they keep complaining about the amount of money that they spend every year on classrooms and it can be anywhere from $500 to a $1,000, $1,500 every august that we spend in the classroom. It says ‘do not burden your pockets with classroom expenses.’ so this correspondence serves as notification to our members that our final consensus has been achieved in reference to the teachers spending large sums of money out of pocket to enhance their classroom environment and to produce teaching aids for their lessons. After countrywide consultations majority of you agree that our teachers are much aggrieved my management’s continuous disregard for 32 , 2 specifically subsection B which states the provision and maintenance of furniture equipment and materials sufficient for the number of students there enrolled. Year after year most of you have been burdened with the responsibility of securing the necessary equipment and materials either by fundraising or with your personal funds for the classroom across this country.”

Smith says that the school management should take on this responsibility to ensure that their classrooms are sufficiently equipped.
