A teacher’s complaint spread across social media resulting in a new desk for her classroom.
Francheska McBride is a teacher who had an old desk sitting on two blocks since 2016, she claimed. As school was scheduled to reopen last week, she took to social media to vent her frustrations.
“Come to work they said. Everything is fixed they said. But yet my desk on blocks and it been like this since 2016.”
McBride’s comment sparked reaction from her followers, many appalled by the condition of the teacher’s desk.
“This is sad,” Rufus Emmanuel said.
Branell Thurston joined the chorus. “If a teacher decides to go to work in this condition that’s on him or her. No way should this be in a classroom. That’s for rodents in a dump.”
The social media post caught the attention of the Ministry of Education which gifted her with a new desk for the new school year.
McBride celebrated the new desk, expressing gratitude to the Minister of State for Education Zane Lightbourne.
