CAYHILL, Sint Maarten — News reaching our newsroom stated that Renata De Weever, Culinary Arts teacher at National Institute for Professional Advancement (NIPA) has been dismissed today.
Apparently the reason given was that there were not enough hours to give her. Renata De Weever has been at NIPA since September 2014, which was her full-time position. De Weever always took pride in her students work, and the students were left distraught upon hearing that she will be leaving the institution.
721 News also learned from a reliable source that a three year contract has been given to a nursing teacher, who happens to be the daughter of the Minister of Education. The community is still baffled that the Minister of Education has not stepped in to investigate what is going on at NIPA.
Many feel nepotism is raising its ugly head at the institution.
