Wednesday, June 4, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: A Belmopan teacher has been charged with having sexual intercourse with a student at Belmopan Comprehensive School.
That teacher, Michael Guzman, now faces criminal charges as the student’s educational life has been cut short.
Minister of Education Patrick Faber is not possessed of the actual details, and says he does not need them, because the decision on how to discipline Guzman and other culprits falls to the school’s board.
Faber noted that while the Ministry has representatives on the school board, there are others involved and they must collectively come to a decision.
But he also made it clear that the Ministry will not condone illicit behavior in schools and repeated his plea for those with important information to step forward.
