Students protest over drunk teachers removal from class

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Tue Feb 06, 2018 8:52 am

The school principal has ruled that drunk teachers partying in the school grounds while armed with a machete and an axe were over the limit, and they have been moved to an office job. However, pupils have protested, saying drunk teachers are not such a big deal, and they want them back in the classroom.

Two rowdy teachers reassigned

Some 50 grade 12 students yesterday protested in front of the Bavel District Education Office to demand that two teachers, who were transferred from Bavel High School to work at the district office in December, be allowed to return to teach in their classrooms.

Mao Sarith, Bavel commune police chief, said teachers Neang Chamnab and Rat Saret were accused of “destroying school property” in a complaint filed by Bavel High School Principal Hour Vuthy after the pair held a party on school grounds and allegedly drunkenly destroyed several trees, a patch of garden, an information board and a bench in the early hours of December 8.

Sarith said he had referred the case back to school officials to resolve as the teachers had been drunk and hadn’t harmed anyone.

Hour said he had filed the complaint as the teachers were armed with a machete and an axe on the night in question.

Trees, old bench, notice board, patch of grass, machete, axe. Looks like they were making a bonfire for the kids.

It was a party that they were throwing for their students, obviously.
