  1. As a teacher at George Charles Secondary School for approx 25 years I do object most strongly to my school being described by reporters and politicians as a ‘breeding ground for criminal activity’. This is a deeply offensive slur on the students who passed through the school and their families. It slaps in the face those of us who for years struggled in difficult circumstances for the development of our students.

    Between 1991 and 2017 George Charles Secondary School graduated thousands of young people who today fill roles throughout the society, in all manner of professions and at all levels – if your ‘thing’ is to emphasize social stratification and thereby ascribe value.

    WE ARE NOT CRIMINAL. WE ARE PRODUCTIVE AND WE HAVE VALUE.

    That said, I think it is time to move on from grieving for the buildings we vacated. The school we all worked at does not exist solely in the materials from which it was built, it remains in our memories and its legacy is each one of us.

    I welcome the idea of converting the plant into a base for the SSU, I hope the project is actualized soon and does not remain only notions and hot air. As said by other contributors to this discussion, a police presence in that community may serve to stabilize things. I hope the project is handled carefully and with sensitivity and I wish the community of Goodlands well.
