Secondary School teachers in Trinidad and Tobago who refuse to mark School Based Assessments (SBAs) could face disciplinary action.

Minister of Education, Anthony Garcia, said he received a report from the Chief Personnel Officer on the refusal by teachers to mark SBAs, unless they are paid to do so.

Earlier this year, the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association (TTUTA) said when the new Academic Year opens in September, teachers will not be marking students' SBAs for free.

TTUTA argued the marking of SBAs is not the job of the teacher since it is part of the evaluation of the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC).

Minister Garcia said TTUTA will take the findings back to their General Council for further discussion. The Education Minister noted that teachers in Jamaica are paid to mark SBAs, however he said this formed part of their negotiations.
