FORMER TEACHER AND UNIONIST OUR LETTER OF THE WEEK WINNER
Susana Tuisawau is a prominent lady who is still going about her business as a strong leader.
Ms Tuisawau is this week’s letter of the week winner who says she will be sending in more letters.
The retired teacher and unionist said: “I love writing as a former English teacher and as a trade unionist I like to write on issues of violation of rights and anything to do with education.
“My advice to people is to be interested to speak out if something is not right, even if it means going against our leaders. The truth needs to be told, speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves because if we don’t who else will.”
Today the active member of the Fijian Teachers Association added: “It is really sad to see the quality of English writing is very poor. I think we are competing against technology, because both young and old are consumed with whatever technological gadget they have. “More children are less interested in reading; they prefer watching TV, Facebook and extra.” The Pacific Foundation for the Advancement of Women director believes more needs to be done to address this issue.
