The Presbyterian Church of T&T (PCTT) and the Presbyterian Primary Schools Board of Education (PPSBE) have been granted leave to file for Judicial Review against the Teaching Service Commission (TSC).
The leave was granted by High Court Judge Westmin James, who also granted leave yesterday to the Catholic Education Board of Management (CEBM) to join the matter as an interested party.
The matter stems from the TSC’s failure to appoint teachers recommended by the Board and interviewed by the Ministry of Education, and for changing the recruitment process for primary school teachers in government-assisted schools.
The matter was adjourned to November 27 for case management. The PCTT and PPSBE were represented by Darryl Allahar, The CEBM by Ian Benjamin SC, and the TSC by Mr Russel Martineau SC.
Attorney Kiel Taklalsingh represented the Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha as an observer.
