'Abusive' Miss suspended until investigations completed

The Tran­quil­li­ty Gov­ern­ment Pri­ma­ry School teacher who was ac­cused of ver­bal­ly and phys­i­cal­ly abus­ing stu­dents of her stan­dard five class has been or­dered by the Teach­ing Ser­vice Com­mis­sion to cease and de­sist from work with im­me­di­ate ef­fect.

Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter An­tho­ny Gar­cia made the an­nounce­ment at a press con­fer­ence on Fri­day where he said the teacher would be barred from work un­til in­ves­ti­ga­tions are com­plet­ed.


The Min­is­ter said an in­ves­ti­ga­tor has been ap­point­ed and has been giv­en 21 days to pro­vide a de­tailed re­port on the mat­ter.

Af­ter that, the teacher would be told if she can re­turn to work or not.

Gar­cia re­vealed that thus far a to­tal of 14 al­le­ga­tions have been made against the said teacher.

An au­dio record­ing, al­leged­ly of the teacher mak­ing abu­sive and in­sult­ing lan­guage to­wards her stu­dents at the Tran­quil­li­ty Gov­ern­ment Pri­ma­ry sur­faced and went vi­ral, prompt­ing the Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion to vis­it the school this week.
