Faber says ministry will not sit by and have union topple efforts of G.O.B.

Patrick Faber

Faber says that while the ministry is not threatening teachers, it will not sit by idly and watch the efforts of the government be toppled by the union. 


Patrick Faber, Minister of Education

“I want to make it absolutely clear as well to those who might be testing the ministry that we are not sitting on our hands and we will not sit by idly either. And watch an attempt be made to topple our efforts in education—topple the delivery of that quality education which we and our stakeholders seek on a daily basis. So I am not going to threaten anybody, I am not going to say that we are necessarily going to jump at anything here. We are going to take our time, be very deliberate in our decision making. But while we do that, I make the appeal to the teachers, but especially to the union leaders, to be reasonable in light of all that is happening and especially in light that we have lost so much valuable class time already.”


According to the Education Rules, it is standard practice to seek permission from the Chief Education Officer.  Failure to do so, if done on purpose, contradicts the spirit of partnership.

    how is your brother’s car driving these days?
    I hope UDP got him a new GOB vehicle.
    With all the new safety features in SUVs these days, drinking and driving is survivable by the perpetrator.

    congrats for having the worst education in the Caribbean, now go the rest of the world.
    Belizean students don’t need much education to be tourist servants and gang members.
    If they could think, this could work against UDP

    I agree, he also give the people money to his brother to take care of his many kids, more little shits to grow up and mess Belize up. See faber don’t care he is getting fat off the people and Belizeans are letting him get away with it. Shut down all the schools and turn them into crack houses.

    Oh faber well know the power of the unions. But good that he forget that the more he push them and act like a bully they will topple the whole govt. He no learn from his pm that you cant try to rough up the teachers in particular and get away with it? This is why you cant put ignorant people in charge of anything. Stupes.
