I have a question for the school board on Saba. Nothing against the TEACHERS, but as a young mother, I am fighting for my kids to have good education.
My kids soon will be going to the primary school so my problem is, if we are part of The Netherlands, why do we have so much of ENGLISH teachers on the island of saba ? How come we don’t have Dutch teachers on the island of Saba?
A dutch man was on Saba and he had a friend with him, so he told the friend in Dutch to look at this island: half of the people don’t speak Dutch. What a waste!
So I said to my self, my God, he is right. The young people of today don’t speak a word of Dutch. What are the youths learning in school because half of the teachers could hardly speak good English, some of them even go online to follow courses.
People talk about the dutch people as if they would want to take over Saba. But when it comes to education and health care, they are one of the best.
Please people of Saba, wake up and smell the coffee before it’s too late.
