The T&T Unified Teachers Association
(TTUTA) has said it is standing by the
teacher embroiled in allegations of physical
abuse, while the matter is being investigated
to ascertain the veracity of the claim.
The teacher is still on the job.
In an interview yesterday, TTUTA s second
vice president Lynsley Doodhai said due
process was not followed as the teacher was
not told of the accusations long after it was
reported to the Ministry of Education and
"One of the main principles of natural jus-
tice is that the accused has to be informed
of the allegations and by whom they are being
made. This was not done."
Doodhai said while TTUTA s did not con-
done corporal punishment, the teacher was
protected by the principle that she was inno-
cent until proven guilty.
"I want to make it clear that TTUTA does
not condone the administering of corporal
punishment in any form or fashion on any
child at our nation s schools," Doodhai said.
He said a field officer from the South East-
ern Education District was sent to the school
on Tuesday to interview the 33-year-old
female teacher who is traumatised. He said
she feared her good name and reputation
would be tarnished by the latest incident. It
is the third time this particular teacher s
name has been linked to fracas with stu-
The latest incident allegedly occurred last
week Wednesday when a six-year-old Second
Year pupil claimed her arm was forcefully
twisted by the teacher after classes.
In March 2014, a Standard Five pupil was
charged and later suspended after assaulting
the teacher, who was sent on three months
leave. Earlier this year, parents Hailey-Ann
Ramnath and Sean Dharsoo called for the
installation of CCTV cameras in the classroom
after allegations that the same teacher slapped
and scraped their six-year old daughter.
Chief education officer Harrilal Seecharan
confirmed there was no evidence to substan-
tiate the Ramnath/Dharsoo claims and that
matter was closed.
With regard to present allegations, Seecha-
ran said the ministry was awaiting a report
from the district school supervisor and based
on the findings and recommendations the
ministry would then move forward.
