ST. THOMAS — A small but dedicated group of teachers, who stood across from the Legislature on Monday evening as Gov. Albert Bryan Jr. entered to give the State of the Territory address, said they’re disappointed by the lack of progress toward improving education in the Virgin Islands.

While most years dozens of government employees protest outside the governor’s annual address, American Federation of Teachers St. Thomas-St. John President Carol Callwood said the union decided not to organize an official demonstration this year.
