Saturday, September 12th, 2015. BMG: Daniel Guerrero, San Pedro Mayor, has gotten himself in hot water after going against the decision of the Ministry of Education (MOE) and giving a holiday to all schools on the island yesterday, September 11.
Guerrero did so even after receiving a letter on Wednesday, denying his request for a school holiday and the MOE issued a press release today, condemning the unauthorized decision he made.
That press release stated that the MOE is the only authority that can approve school holidays and that arbitrary decisions made at the municipal level cannot be condoned.
Furthermore, the release noted that public and bank holidays or the declaration of school holidays cannot be determined by municipal authorities, as it is not within their jurisdiction.
