I found it very difficult to get a complete or satisfactory answer to my question of what happened to the program “Volunteers for Literacy”. On one hand I was told the staff position was cut by the Dept Education. I was also told it was us, as a volunteer group we received a government grant to operate and pay a staff person,and it was our group that failed. There is certainly a serious lack of communication, I have yet to be officially informed the program is over. Nevertheless, it seems clear, regardless of who or what the cause might have been its over!. A sad end to a wonderful program. In the fall I shall return to my school and explain this to the principle, if she allows I will continue on as before. I’m confident she will have me back, so in a way the program will continue. I’m a wee bit frustrated and have a taste of crow in my mouth, I really wanted to blame it on government. But never mind it wont be long before they do something else just as despicable. Plan B comes rushing to mind!!
Cheers and keep reading.
