Philipsburg, Sint Maarten — President of the Windward Islands Teachers Union (WITU) Stuart Johnson is calling for the full disclosure of the Health Inspectorate report and all previous reports made for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Primary School since the passage of Hurricane Irma.

“All reports especially the latest report must be made public regarding the ongoing situation at school as the school was never a priority,” says Johnson.
