Thursday, May7th, 2015. BMG: High school teacher Elito Puc has been dismissed by the Teaching Services Commission and his teacher’s license has been revoked by the Ministry of Education.
Yesterday Minister of Education, Hon. Patrick Faber condemned Puc’s actions and said that he will ensure that Puc never teaches at another educational institution in Belize.
He told the media and we quote: “What has happened is that he of course has been dismissed as a teacher from his school and also his teaching license has been revoked. This will mean of course as well that he will be placed on a register of offenders – so that all those in the education system; and I think maybe a similar type services in government are aware of this kind of practice on his part. So that he cannot seek employment in another school. This is something that long been a desire of our ministry – we have seenwhere predators prey on our young people and of course they move from one school to another school.”
Elito Puc has 30 days to appeal and to challenge the decision made by the Ministry of Education and the Teaching Services Commission.
In an interview early this morning with Puc, he told Belize Media Group that he is seeking legal advice from his attorney.
