    Who is the Landlord of the new Education Premises?
    So we engineer a move which means that effectively the Education dept is shut down while school starts and then Teachers are in place without backup
    It is all smoke and mirrors to hide the still existing mold in our schools and why now is Tweedledum attacking education the day before school starts
    I was expecting a labour day comment from the Teachers Union but all must be good in our schools

    They only been down in The East for around 6 years.

    Temporary moves cost money.

    • What?? says:

      The building they were in was basically condemned. Where they supposed to ignore that and continue working there?

      • Question says:

        Why did the PLP move them there if the building is dangerous?
