By Aaron Humes: Minister of Education, Culture, Science, and Technology Francis Fonseca has reported a successful meeting on Friday with the Belize National Teachers’ Union (BNTU).
According to the Minister, there was a “very lengthy and useful discussion on a number of outstanding issues of concern to the BNTU” with its team headed by President Senator Elena Smith.
He said he also updated them on the ongoing work of the Ministry and provided an overview of our Belize Education Strategy Plan 2021-2025.
Schools are currently projected in most cases to reopen for face-to-face learning after the Christmas break in January.
The teachers along with other public officers are also still angling to get back the 10 percent cut in pay they suffered earlier this year.
The Minister affirmed, “From my very first day in office as the Minister of Education I have made it a priority to improve and strengthen our working relationship with the BNTU. We will certainly not always agree on every issue but I am confident that both sides recognize and appreciate the importance of a strong, effective working partnership grounded in mutual respect and a shared commitment to a vibrant, quality education community. There is much work ahead but together we can MAKE EDUCATION WORK FOR BELIZE…”
