The Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA) has been advised by letter over the signature of the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, that the Minister of Education, Honourable Andrew Holness, has accepted the resignation of Mr. Alphansus Davis as Senior Advisor to the Minister.

This decision has cleared the way for the JTA’s representatives to begin attending meetings of the Teachers’ Service Commission (TSC). The JTA had objected to the appointment of the Senior Advisor to the Minister as Chairman of the Commission.

The JTA is very happy that the issue has been resolved. The outstanding matters relating to the appointment of principals and the evaluation of teachers’ qualifications can now be speedily addressed.
