Minister of Education expresses disappointment over BNTU President’s resignation; Reaffirms commitment to union collaboration

Posted: Saturday, September 2, 2023. 9:17 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  Ruth Shoman, the President of the Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU), has stepped down amid growing pressures linked to challenges concerning her eligibility for the position due to ambiguities in her past employment status.

In a conversation with 7News Belize, Francis Fonseca, the Minister of Education, Culture, Science, and Technology, expressed his regret over Shoman’s decision to leave. He lauded her long-standing advocacy for teachers and noted her consistent presence at the BNTU table.

“Our engagement with the Belize National Teachers Union remains unwavering,” Minister Fonseca said. “While we await their decision regarding the union’s forthcoming leadership, we are primed and eager to collaborate with the incoming president.”

He added, “It’s genuinely disheartening for me to see Mrs. Shoman depart under these circumstances. She has been a pivotal figure in the BNTU for many years, and I remember her dedication from my previous tenure as Minister of Education two decades ago. However, we extend our best wishes to her.”

Concluding his remarks, Minister Fonseca emphasized that the discussions held with Shoman were always fruitful and that she played an active role in those deliberations.
