Staying on the theme of Saturday schools, I found out about this school this morning, it really is unbelievable and it happened here in the UK at a Libyan Saturday school:
A Libyan father took his children to the Libyan school in Bradford on Saturday morning as usual , the school day finishes at 4 in the afternoon every Saturday.
On that day he happened to be passing in front of the school at 2 in the afternoon when he noticed a group of Libyan children playing in the park that is situated next to the school, on closer inspection he was surprised to see that his children were there as well, the school and park are situated on a busy main street! He looked around but he could not see any teachers or adults with the children, he asked them what had happened and why they were there and not at school?? imagine how he felt when the kids told him that the school let them leave early today at 1 pm for some unknown reason, the school did this without telling the parents, they just opened the door and the children were let out, this is a primary school so we are talking about young children, understandably this parent was furious, he describes the area where the school is as crime ridden where any child could disappear and he said that the traffic is very busy only a short distance from where the kids were playing and Allah forbid an accident could have happened.
In this country, primary schools do not let any child out unless a parent or a guardian is there to take them home, what was the Headteacher of this school thinking??
This father is very angry and is trying to get some answers, this school broke the law, if this happens to my children, I would go to the highest authorities, I would go to the police, to the council, I would do everything I can to close it down until responsible people are found to run it, I do not only blame the useless Headteacher but even the more useless teachers, didn't any of them think that they should stay with the children!!
A message to the education authorities in Libya that are responsible for sending people to run Libyan schools abroad:
