By BBN Staff: Minister of Education Patrick Faber, says that the administration at Muffles College needs to respect the decision of the Teaching Services Commission with respect to the teacher that was suspended earlier this year after nude photos of her were leaked online.
Faber, said today that he has heard, but not yet confirmed that the principal recently revictimized the teacher by bringing up the situation over the school’s intercom system. He stressed that it is not the place of the Ministry of Education to intervene in every situation, but that the administration has already received its directive and should be acting accordingly.
“The matter having been taken before the Teaching Services Commission should be upheld,” Faber said. “The decision made by such an entity…is something that the school should respect and respond to. ”
He stressed that he, as the Minister, would not condone any such revictimization of the teacher, and is seeking clarification on the situation at Muffles.
The situation raised public outrage over social media earlier this week, as a screenshot began circulating of the teacher making a post about the alleged revictimization. Reports are that the school’s administration tried to force the teacher to resign following the Teaching Services Commission’s decision that she should be reinstated, and that the school restricted her access to the compound when she refused to resign.
The Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU)has weighed in on the matter, saying that it will stand behind the teacher through whatever means of recourse she feels appropriate to pursue.
