The Guyana Teachers Union is calling on the Education Ministry to help the public fully understand the automatic promotion of student’s initiative. The union’s General Secretary, Coretta McDonald said she believes parents are not fully aware of what the program is all about and as such the ministry should seek to educate the public about it.

The General Secretary said more work will need to be done by the teachers along with students who are slow learners during the holiday vacation before they can be promoted.
McDonald said the teachers are prepared to work with the ministry to ensure that the program is successful once they are given the proper compensation. She pointed out that this necessary since teachers will be required to work during their august vacation. When the program was first introduced some parents during last year expressed concern over the program.
