The Malta Teacher’s Union has expressed its mistrust of personnel being selected by the St Albert College rector and board after a ‘way-forward’ meeting was cancelled last minute.
This comes after the MUT attempted to settle the disputes which arose from Mario Mallia being let go from his position by being in contact with the Dominican Order, the Secretariat for Catholic Education and the Directorate for Quality and Standards within the Ministry of Education.
The MUT said that the situation at St Albert College remains critical as more educators resign and no preparations for reopening are being settled. Educators are also reportedly being given empty promises, along with parents and their children.
A meeting set for today and coordinated by the MUT and the rector’s lawyers was cancelled last minute.
Parents are also raising red-flags at the fact that first school term starts very soon, with students attending the college being left in the dark as to their immediate educational future.
The union has held regular meetings with educators at the college and the position it currently holds reflects the feedback of the educators. The union reaffirms that it is willing to support the Dominican Order on condition that the rector and the board resign or are removed from office.
