Nov 10, 2017 News

Two teachers suspended late last year over allegations they physically abused students are back in the classroom. Police investigated the Sir John A Cumber Primary School teachers for two separate incidences -- the first stemming from November 2016 and the other from December 2016, when it was alleged the teacher threw a chair at a student. According to a statement sent to Cayman 27 from an Education Ministry spokesperson: "The RCIPS investigations have concluded, as well as DES internal investigations, and both teachers are back in the classroom. One was transferred to a different school and the other returned to the teacher's original post at sir john a cumber primary school." Cayman 27 asked for clarification on when the teachers were reinstated but are yet to hear back.
