Education Minister Anthony Garcia beamed recently that all schools were opened at the start of the school term.
But since then there have been several protests about the conditions of school facilities.
On Monday, parents of students of Preysal Government Primary School turned out in inclement weather to protest the condition under which their children are taught.
Last week, parents of students of Siparia Union Presbyterian School protested the state of their facility, claiming that the authorities were planning to use plywood as walls.
Earlier, parents of pupils at Mayaro Government Primary School staged a similar protest about school conditions.
There have also been protests at Ecclesville Presbyterian Primary School – again for similar reasons.
Parents of Point Fortin Anglican Primary School have protested conditions at the facility.
The Penal-Quinam Government Primary School was closed because of dilapidated conditions.
There have been problems at Pleasantville Government School.
Also, at Delaford Primary School.
Problems were reported at other schools across the country.
At the opening of the school term in mid-April, Garcia said: “I am very pleased to say for the second consecutive time all our schools opened on time – primary and secondary schools.
“This has not happened over the last 15 years.
“It is unprecedented in the annals of the education system.”
