There is an age old expression that actions speak louder than words. The illustrious school board was slapped in the face today by the returning teachers. Before, I get to the point you need to know that the board accused the former director Mr. Hemmie van Xanten, of having no control over the teachers. It is unclear how they arrived at this conclusion. They, the board, did not ask the teachers. They did not stand on a street corner, to my knowledge, asking people to complete a short survey. No, they decided one day that it was true and it became true in their universe where all laws that applies to nature are suspended.
Back in June 2014, prior to school closing, the board told the former director through their flunky staffunctionaris to inform all teachers that they were to be at school on August 11 at 8 am. That message went in one ear and out the other because we know that at least two teachers possibly more were not here. When I say not here, I mean not on island.
That’s what happens when you the board treat people disrespectfully. You get treated in the same way because it’s obvious that many of the teachers don’t give a rat’s ass what the board says.
You are familiar with the other expression, what goes around comes around because while it is unclear if the former director had control over the teachers one thing is certain, this board definitely has no control over them.
