Bermuda Teachers Union General Secretary Michael Charles today [June 27] sent an open letter to Prime Minister Michael Dunkley about the America’s Cup conclusion and voiced concerns about schools on the island.

Mr. Charles said, “Can we expect the schools our children deserve? In 2012, you said that our schools were in crisis; you promised solutions. We are now in 2017, what have you accomplished?

The entire letter follows below.

Congratulations Mr. Prime Minister!

You did it. . .
When others doubted – you stand firm;
When extra space was needed, you created land space out of the ocean!
You have entertained and served the rich and the famous;
You have delivered our home island into their hands;
You neglected our children;
You neglected their future;
You neglected our public schools;
The “event” is over – What now?
Can we expect the same enthusiasm for our schools?
Can we expect equal care and attention?

Are our schools benefiting from it?

  • Furniture ?
  • Any equipment?

Can we expect safe schools, healthy schools?

  • Schools without mold;
  • Schools free of bird mites;
  • Schools without plumbing problems?

Can we expect the schools our children deserve?
In 2012, you said that our schools were in crisis; you promised solutions.
We are now in 2017, what have you accomplished?

Is the crisis over?
