Teachers got their message too late

first_imgDear Editor,When this People’s National Congress-led coalition Government came to office, it removed completely the $10,000 cash-per-child award given to parents on behalf of their children at school. It was an unconscionable, uncaring and downright low blow dealt to the children of this country; but no one said a word of protest, save the Opposition PPP/C, all others were strangely silent. They were well in agreement with their party and Government in that move because, as they claim, it was the Government’s way of punishing the PPP/C for a political gimmick to get votes.How asinine that assertion was, but the facts are clear that the parents were punished for the former Government doing something worthy and caring.Little did the teachers, who are also daytime parents of our children, realise that their day would soon come, when the demonic side of their Government would be unleashed on them in a “no grant of increases in salaries and benefits”. It was the bare facts of karma hitting them like an avalanche. Teachers were caught flat-footed when the beastly side of their Government was revealed.When the situation began to sink in that they were not about to get anything from this Government, it was only then that they rose up in condemnation. Now that the situation reached boiling point. The teachers are asking for all the support they can get, and from what I gather, the parents are about now coming out in support of the teachers’ cause.With the support teachers are getting from parents, they should be humbled and thankful for the help they are getting in their time of need, when they needed that supporting shoulder to cry on. I do hope teachers get the stern rebuke message that they deserve, and get the rude awakening that they should have been more sympathetic and understanding of the parents’ plight when they were so affected.But such is the harsh situation in a place called Guyana, where politics clouds the eyes so that even when the situation is more than obvious, folks turn the blind eye until the problem hits home. At that instance, they want everyone else to lend a helping hand. As the lyrics of the Old Anglican Hymn says, “O come and mourn with me awhile, O come let us mourn … together.” Fit and proper words for the situation at hand.Guyana is a doomed place with the PNC in Government, and the sooner the masses get the message the better. Sorry the teachers got theirs so late, but as the saying goes, “better late than never.” Another day is coming; that is, general elections. I wait to see their response to that litmus test also.Respectfully,Neil Adamslast_img read more


NEW DONEGAL MANAGER TO BE NAMED ON MONDAY

first_imgWill Rory Gallagher be named as the new manager of the Donegal GAA Senior team next week?The successor to Jim McGuinness is set to be unveiled early next by the Donegal County Board.The County Board have scheduled a meeting for next Monday, and it’s expected that representatives on the board will announce who is the new Donegal Senior team manager.Rory Gallagher remains the hot favourite with the bookies. The former assistant to Jim McGuinness knows many of the current squad very well, and seems the obvious replacement.However, there is speculation that a lack of experience in managing a team could count against Gallagher.His roles to date have seen the Fermanagh man assistant to Jim McGuinness with the Senior side, and assistant to Maxi Curran with the U21 team.He was joint-manager in Kilcar this year alongside John McNulty. It has also emerged that Paddy Carr could also be in with a strong chance of getting the vacant position.He has a wealth of club and inter-county experience and is seen as a strong candidate for the position.Anthony Harkin, and Cathal Corey are the other two candidates that have applied for the role of Donegal Senior team manager, but neither are likely to get the nod. NEW DONEGAL MANAGER TO BE NAMED ON MONDAY was last modified: October 30th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGAAJim McGuinnessManagernewsRory GallagherSportSuccessorlast_img read more
