ECHO OF TH€ TEACHERS' STRIKE. I I Five Resignations at the Girls' and I Infants' School. We regret to announce that matters educa- tionally are far from settled in Ledbury, due in the main to the fact tlkst the two former head- mistresses, Miss Henley and Miss Adams, have not been reinstated. At the conclusion of the strike the bld staff returned to the girls' and infants' schools, where Miss Creasey jand Miss Jenkinson respectively bad been appointed headmistresses, in place of the old heads, but after a month's work the members of the old staff, with the exception of two, have sent in their resignations, the reason given, we under- stand, being that they have no desire to con- tinue their labours in the absence of their old headmistresses. Although we can gain no official confirmation of the resignations, yet from enquiries made we are confident that the foregoing will be found fn the main to be correct, when the next meeting of managers is held, which is fixed for Wednes- day next. The resignations handed in are from the following :—Girls' school—Miss Hartlaud {certificated assistant), Miss Hart and Miss Lloyd (uncertificated assistants) infante' school -Atm Lee (certificated assistant), Miss Hard- wicke (uncertificated assistant). They were handed in on Wednesday and will take effect at the end of the month. V The next meeting of the managers promises to be more than interesting, although it is probable that the more interesting business will be taken in committee. We understand that an enquiry will be conducted by the managers at their meeting on Wednesday next into the alleged unnecessary punishment inflicted on the twin daughters of Mr and Mrs A Carless, New- town, and it is probable that other similar com- plaints will be taken at the same time. The unfortunate part of the whole business is that while the staff is in such an unsettled con- dition the greatest sufferers are bound to be the children. It is interesting to note that for about ten years, until the recent strike, the same staff had been employed at the infants' school. It appears now as if there will have to be a new staff altogether.
