Barbados’ Education Minister does not believe Barbadian Schools have adequate Security measures – plans to boost soon
Took a look at GIS’ News site this morning and found this;-
What I’d like to know is, while the kids are kept safe from outside forces – what happens to ensuring teachers are not psychoes of a beating nature? I know of a thorny situation where a so-called educator at a Primary school stated openly she has it in for all of her “pretty” students! What does that have to do with learning or teaching?
The woman beat a whole class of 6/7 year olds with four rulers strapped together on their forearms because one child talked and none of them identified the culprit! The principal has received numerous complaints, what will it take for him to act? Postal or Ballistic??
Years ago at another Primary school, when a male teacher did something like that to a boy of 8, the father made sure from various sources his son was not covering guilt and he went to the school with a pipe loaded with concrete… The brutalising man had to drive out of there in a HURRY!
There needs to be a some kind of psyhcological sorting test to verify if a person has the right temperament to teach, apart from adequate skills – and it needs to be re-done throughout the teachers’ career as you never know what situation may turn an educators’ head from going good to worse! Perhaps potential parents should go under a similar microscope?
