The PLP government creates problems and then wants accolades for solving them

After causing unnecessary angst for over a year, it does a turnabout on the decisions to close two schools—what a waste of taxpayers’ dollars, says OBA’s Ben Smith 

St David’s Primary can breathe a sigh of relief that they are not losing another part of their community with the school being saved. St David’s has been ignored for far too long and this about turn by the government can’t cover that up.

We have to applaud the West End Warriors for standing up and fighting for their position. It has taken a long time for the Minister to finally come to his senses after all the frustration and anxiety that he caused during this process.

Those who supported the schools staying open can celebrate today but the Minister should not pat himself or his colleagues on the back for the result. The pressure applied forced him to cave in and political survival was his decision maker.

Bermuda needs to pay attention to how this government operates.

This is just another example of them creating a huge problem only to change their position as if they are the ones with the solutions. When you make this level of changes after being so stubborn and arrogant with your original position it makes me question what else in the Education plan needs to be rescored.

How is the Minister still in charge of education? He has been asked to resign by so many and today just adds to the reasons why.
