One of the Cuban teachers sent back to Cuba by government officials wants the money that was promised to him. According to the former teacher of R.M. Bailey high school, Bahamian officials came to his university in Cuba and asked a number of teachers if they would like to come to the Bahamas to teach. Then after no one was interested, a Bahamian official said that not only will they be paid the same as Bahamian teachers but they would bet placed in a gated condominium complex with security, get Free plane tickets back home twice a year plus $10.000 cash when their contracts were up. After this Bahamian officials had more Cuban teachers than they needed. The Bahamian officials selected a teacher who could speak only a few words of English and when he asked if this was going to be a problem teaching mechanics, he was told it would not because most of the school kids didn’t speak English either. Amazingly, this teacher was later fired for not being able to speak English after kids started complaining about his anger because they could not understand him. The government refuses to give us a count on the number of foreign teachers taking Bahamian jobs just for kick backs.
