Educator Jamie Lee Usher Fired From Belize High School

Jamie Lee Usher is an educator who has made it in the news as a driving force within the Belize High School.  Tonight, however, Love News has confirmed that Usher was fired from the institution.  It is an unexpected turn of events, not only because of her political connections, but because of her numerous commendations for the role she played at BHS.  While Usher has confirmed that she was terminated, she declined to comment further.  Our newsroom sought answers from the school, but we were unsuccessful.  Reports are still contradictory, as one source is saying that the termination is built on political mischief, while another source says that it may have had to do with her strict approach towards staff and students.  Best information, however, suggests that Usher had come under tremendous pressures by the school board following an event in November 2023 when Belize High School tested its voting program in the PUP’s councilor convention for Belize City.  The board was reportedly not happy with the arrangement, and had voted to terminate Usher back then.  Love News further understands that when the board had a change of heart, the then Chairman chose to resign.  A new chairman was brought in by way of Steve Perera.  As for the rationale behind her termination, the letter dated today, did not give a basis for the dismissal, but would only say that her services are no longer required.  We understand that the board was upset with Usher’s response to their attempt at micro-managing the plans and arrangements for future competitions.  She reportedly tried getting support from the parents to influence the board’s heavy hand.  The board was not happy with Usher’s transparency with the parents, and reportedly opted to terminate her services.  One parent confirmed with us today that she saw Usher’s belongings being loaded onto a pickup truck at around two thirty this afternoon.  As we noted, we did try to reach the school for comment, but our calls went unanswered.
