FSSG change of status to improve standards

Mrs. Gloria Palmer, a member of the Task Force for the Change of Status of the Freetown Secondary school for Girls [FSSG], has stated that the motive of the owners of the school has been misunderstood.

Mrs. Palmer was reacting to the recent protest made by “anti-privatization” pupils and teachers of the school.  Speaking to journalists in Freetown Mrs. Palmer rebuffed claims that the school was going to be privatized. She said the Board of Trustees (the owners of the school) was only trying to make the school independent. She said the idea to make the school “independent” was to raise the educational standards and improve its facilities.

According to Mrs. Palmer the jobs of members of staff were not threatened. Teachers had earlier alleged that the Board of Trustees had threatened to terminate their services. She pointed out that an olive branch was extended to them by the Board of Trustees to work collaboratively with the new dispensation. Mrs. Palmer reiterated that the FSSG which is owned by the Board of Trustees would not sit back to see the school wallowing in the mud.
