The Zongo Police in the Asawase constituency of the Ashanti Region have begun investigations into the alleged assault of a class one pupil.
A teacher with Happy Kings Primary School at Sawaba is reported to have lashed the nine-year-old pupil for failing to complete a mathematics assignment.
The victim said she was mercilessly caned.
Interacting with JoyNews’ Erastus Asare Donkor, the victim said the strokes she received have led to open wounds on her back, body and buttocks.
“I was suffering initially, but today it is better,” the nine-year-old told JoyNews.
This is to all teachers out there that if you are caught the law will deal with you. So Headteachers, school owners, parents, and the teaching staff should take notes on this issue. The law will not free anyone for such act. Let’s we all be watchful and bring all these kind of teachers before the law.
