The Head Teacher and Deputy Head Teacher of the New Amsterdam Multilateral School will be reassigned to other institutions to alleviate tension among staff, who just weeks ago had requested transfers amid claims of racial tension and other issues.
The Ministry of Education, in a statement on Monday, related that a meeting was recently held between the Chairman of the school’s board, the Region 6’s Regional Chairman, the Chairman of the Education Committee of Region 6, the President of the Guyana Teachers Union, the Chief Education Officer, the Deputy Chief Education Officer, and other senior education officials.
