KUWAIT CITY, Dec 3: A female teacher of a public intermediate school in Mishref took an unprecedented action in the education sector by torturing a student for performing badly in an examination. According to a source, the teacher has been summoned for investigation.
He said the school confirmed the incident based on the testimony of a social worker, explaining that the student’s parents reported the incident at a police station after obtaining a medical report from Mubarak Hospital. The report indicated the effect of the torture appeared conspicuously on the right hand of the student.
Meanwhile, a campaign organized by the so-called Tripartite Committee to arrest teachers who offer private tuitions in violation of the law has seized 26 teachers from the Hawalli governorate, reports Al- Anba daily. A security source said most of those who were arrested were charged with violating the labor law.
They were given a reprieve from deportation after they signed a pledge not to repeat the offence. According to an eyewitness the arrests were made when the teachers were found working for a private institute. Some of them who tried in vain to escape the raid by jumping from the second floor where the institute is located suffered injuries and were taken to a hospital.
