Power of the Teaching Service Commission
The Constitution also makes it clear at Section 2 that it is the supreme law of Trinidad and Tobago. Therefore Section 5 of the Education Act which gives the Minister of Education the power to do all such other things "for the carrying out of his responsibilities for education and training" does not include a power to appoint, transfer or discipline a teacher. These powers rest solely within the purview of the Teaching Service Commission (TSC). As has been stated before it is only where the Commission finds merit in a complaint on moral or religious grounds that a principal may be removed.
