by | Sep 2, 2014

The Hon Min. Tim GopeesinghMinister of Education Dr. Tim Gopeesingh has responded to criticism from the President of the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association (TTUTA) Devanand Sinanan.

Mr. Sinanan claimed that while TTUTA appreciated the efforts of the Ministry of Education in trying to get all schools ready for the new school term, the sheer scale of the repair exercise was too much for the Education Facilities Company Limited (EFCL) to handle.

The TTUTA president also said that the Education Ministry needed to sit with TTUTA and other stake holders in order to put greater emphasis on the maintenance
programme.

Dr. Gopeesingh countered by saying that the TTUTA President was not basing his comments on evidence.
