On Friday 14 August, 2020, members of the NESTA Executive Committee had an emergency meeting with the Chairperson of LEGCO Panel on Education, Mrs Regina Ip.
A wide range of issues were discussed, including:
- the practice of principals requiring teachers and students to come to school during COVID
- retirement and contract extensions after 60
- medical insurance for NETs
Mrs Ip agreed to look into these issues with the EDB. A full record of the meeting minutes will be posted in the forum shortly.
