    Why the variation in time allotted for orientation?  – e.g. Joan A Cumber has 4 hours, George Town has 2 and Savannah has one and a half hours  Maybe based on the number of new students?

    How do students make a genuine complaint about teachers improper behaviour?


    As a dedicated and fair parent I would like to know my children can make genuine complaints without being victimized.


    But with Caymanians in charge who appear to be indifferent in publicly sharing information and the majority of their teachers are foreigners and many from same country, so how do we ensure that students have a safe objective place to file a complaint and confidence that the Ministry will have the courage to terminate the contracts immediately, not simply transferring to another school.

      And what about your bully of a child? The one who is disruptive, abides by no rules at school and has parents calling politicians as to why the child is crying because the child was reprimanded to do some work?
