In a statement, the Ministry of Education said that the students came to the ministry and blocked access to the buildings for several hours, breaking the main barrier and the windshields of several vehicles parked on the compound as well as the windows of the buildings.
“The Ministry regrets this kind of action on the part of people who are called upon to supervise our young people and to inculcate in them the values of living together, of tolerance, of dialogue and of respect for others. “
The Ministry of Education said that it also wanted to remind “the protesters that the recruitment of an employee in the public service depends on the budgetary appropriations available and the real needs of the system”.
It said while it respected the rights of people to assert their claims, it was urging the students to “do so within the limits of the law and respect for the rights of others”.
The teachers mainly in the Petit-Goâve area have not been attending classes demanding the payment of arrears and letters of appointment. Some teachers have joined the strike in solidarity with their colleagues
Last week, students from the Faustin Soulouque, EFACAP and the Nissage David National School took to the streets demanding the resumption of classes.
