Dellwood Principal Tina Duke Back At Work

May 7, 2018

Tina Duke — the principal of Dellwood Middle School — is “no longer on administrative leave and has returned to her substantive post” after being “cleared of any wrongdoing,” the BPSU said today.

BPSU President Jason Hayward said, “The Bermuda Public Services Union [BPSU] would like to advise the public that our member Sis. Tina Duke, the principal of Dellwood Middle School [DMS], is no longer on administrative leave and has returned to her substantive post.

“Members of the public will recall that on March 2, 2018, the Acting Commissioner of Education placed Sis. Duke on administrative leave while an investigation by the Department of Child and Family Services was conducted into allegations made against her.

“We wish to highlight that Sis. Duke has been cleared of any wrongdoing.

“Sis. Duke is gratified that she can now return to the business at hand – leading Dellwood Middle School. She would like to take this opportunity to thank the DMS family including staff, parents and students who pulled together and continued to work hard to ensure that there was little disruption to teaching and learning during this period.

“The Union will continue to fight for a greater balance between the need to protect our children and reputational damage educators suffer during periods of investigation.”

    I’m finding Senator/President Hayward’s conflict of interest due to holding both posts problematic.

    It is sad how someone can be removed from their position because of an allegation. I’m happy to see Mrs. Duke back at work. Too bad she couldn’t be compensated for the bad press.
