Responding to the news that the States Assembly has voted to push ahead with secondary education reform but not provide any funding, Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of NASUWT – the Teachers’ Union said:
“The States Assembly has failed yet another cohort of children, young adults and their teachers and lecturers by refusing to give education the investment it so desperately requires. This decision sends the simple message that the States of Deliberation does not value children’s education, which is an utter disgrace.
“The States urgently needs to bring forward new plans on how it intends to fund these reforms and ensure that Guernsey’s education system is fit for the 21st century.”
Wayne Bates, National Negotiating Official, said:
“The States’ decision last week to reaffirm the current model – yet cut all funding – has created a situation where young people in Guernsey are set up to fail.
“The Guernsey Institute will have to continue in dilapidated buildings with water pouring through the roof. The Sixth Form will either be located in an hopelessly overcrowded site at Les Varendes, or a near end-of-life site at La Mare de Carteret. This will create numerous health and safety risks for pupils and teachers, and will seriously affect Guernsey’s ability to recruit and retain teachers.”
