UDP Says GOB Should Rethink the Reopening of Schools

While dozens of schools are hoping to open, the United Democratic Party is saying that the Ministry of Education needs to put the brakes on the reopening planned for Monday. In a press release, the UDP says that it is impractical to open schools because of the spiraling number of cases, the health system’s inability to manage the spike and an increase in the number of fatalities. UDP Shadow Minister and former Dangriga Deputy Mayor, Earth Lopez told Love News this evening that the decision needs to be reconsidered because parents have not been included.

The UDP’s release ended by saying, quote, “We are living in a country where crime and violence are out of control, leadership is lacking in every level of government and the people are suffering because our leaders are incompetent to deal with the social problems…We do not support the reopening of schools under these circumstances” End of quote.
