Education Minister, Ronald Thwaites says his Ministry will not be depriving teachers of vacation leave for the 2014-2015 academic year.

Yesterday the Jamaica Teacher’s Association requested that the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry furnish them with a list of teachers who’ve been granted leave.

This in light of reports that some teachers who’ve applied for leave have had their requests denied.

But addressing the media yesterday, Minister Thwaites says this is not so.
