Ministry of Education closes Biscayne school

AARON HUMES Reporting: Residents of the village of Biscayne on the Philip Goldson Highway want to know why the Ministry of Education has closed the newly constructed Biscayne Seventh Day Adventist School which opened its doors this year.

A number of students have transferred there from the local Government School.

One parent, Dasia Robinson, says she took her children out of the school without obtaining transfer because staffing concerns led to her little ones being bullied without intervention by authorities.

Robinson told us she applied for a transfer but was refused, nontheless she remains in trouble with authorities.

The closure took place on Monday following a meeting called by the school with parents, ostensibly to hear from the Ministry’s representatives.

But according to Lorena Vasquez, whose niece and nephew attend Biscayne SDA, the Ministry’s representatives flatly refused to answer any questions.

She says the whole scenario is unfair for the students of the SDA School, who may have to repeat classes because their work at the new school is not recognized.

The Ministry has pursued a policy of limiting the number of schools in villages to ensure a better distribution of students to schools.
