Ministry Of Education Finalises Decision On Suspended Teacher

The Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts has today finalized its decision on the suspension of the teacher at Jasper Williams High School.

There were allegations leveled against the teacher for reading private text messages to teachers and students at the school. The Ministry Of Education Ethics and Disciplinary Unit had completed its internal investigation and with the information gathered to date, the teacher did not breach any of the standing policies in the Public Service Commission Code of Conduct.

However, the teacher will go through thorough counselling to better handle similar situations in the future. The Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts will also further fine tune the existing policy on mobile phones and similar gadgets in schools to clearly define the boundaries to all teachers, parents and students.

The Police are also continuing their investigation and the Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts will await the outcome of the investigation.
