A Rio Claro primary school teacher has been suspended and may face criminal charges after slapping a standard three student. The student, according to the Trinidad Guardian report, was allegedly struck with such force that the principal’s hand printed out on his face.
Medical officials, we cannot confirm, said the child got the “full Donna Cox treatment.”
Mr Live Wire understands that the principal’s enraged attack occurred while he was trying to show the young man the need for emotional control and self-discipline. Lesson delivered, sir.
Sources from the Education Ministry confirmed that, yes, corporal punishment is still forbidden.
The PNM, when contacted, probably did not say that these things happen at political screenings.
