Unreasonable School Leadership
by Concerned Parent
(Montego Bay, Jamaica)
I'm a concerned parent of a student attending Anchovy High School in St. James.
On Monday September 16th, I dropped my daughter off at school only to see her return home with a letter stating that her uniform was shorter than the required standard set by the school.
I went to the school on Tuesday and tried to talk to her form teacher about the matter and He was most disrespectful in his tone and manner.
I tried to address the matter by letting the uniform down all the way but again she was held back from class, after she was told by the vice principal that the uniform was OK, then getting to class to have the form teacher tell her it was still too short.
All this time the uniform fully covers her knees.
Quite frankly, I think the leadership at the school is being very hard on the students at this institution.
What I think they should do is have a meeting with the parents of the children and try to work out a solution to the problem and not keep the children away from class because what they have already missed is gone and I'm sure that these teachers are not going to spend the time to go over any lost material with them.
I do not think that these are the times that children should be denied the opportunity to learn because of unreasonable school leadership. These are hard times and we as a nation should stand together.
Remember the children are our future and what you teach is what they learn.
