The Jamaica Association of Principals and Vice-Principals says the teachers are more upset about what it calls the ‘arrogance’ of the government than the wage offer itself.
Vice President of the Jamaica Association of Principals and Vice Principals, Linvern Wright, says all the teachers want is respect.
He says several schools were impacted by the industrial action taken by public school teachers on Monday.
In the meantime a parent, James, says even though he was affected by the action of the teachers on Monday, he supports their move. He’s urging the teachers to maintain the industrial action for much longer.
