Statement on state of Black Point All-Age School
January 26, 2019
Chester Cooper, Exumas and Ragged Island MP
It is an outrage that Black Point All-Age School remains in a state of disrepair five months after the school year began.
I previously raised this issue in the House of Assembly.
The fact of the matter is this administration removed oversight of school repairs those previously responsible to a new contractor who, despite assuring me four months ago that the work had mobilized, has not completed the work as contracted.
I am trying to determine exactly why this has happened.
Also, as I did last year, I have brought the deplorable state of the school to the attention of the minister, who has promised that the repairs will take place.
It is a frustrating state of affairs and in no way acceptable.
No matter how remote the community, all children in The Bahamas deserve to have comfortable, safe accommodations when receiving their education.
