TSLB to urgently undertake review of its policies
January 29, 2021 4:55 pm
The Attorney General has labeled the abrupt and arbitrary decision to suspend certain Topper’s students from their scholarships as an academic sabotage.
Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says the review revealed the lack of transparency for poor and inconsistent implementation of government’s objectives were the root problem.
Sayed-Khaiyum says the plan is to reinstate Topper’s students who were suspended last year without any personal notification.
“TSLB’s management was treating university students like they were in a day-care, with no genuine consultation or consistent communication. And our Toppers deserved a far higher level of professionalism. “
The AG adds certain TSLB policies were poorly and inconsistently enforced and students were essentially ambushed by the news of their suspensions.
“The manner in which these students were notified of their suspensions also wasn’t right. Rather than be individually notified, students received a blanket notice of how this policy would affect them and their academic futures. That practice should not continue.”
Sayed-Khaiyum says TSLB will be undertaking a number of other reviews and audit its policies and processes to build a much stronger bridge between the administration and students.
