Sometimes parents complain about teachers just for the sake of venting out some frustration … yet sometimes we tend to forget how lucky we are that most teachers in Malta and Gozo are very dedicated persons who take care of children as if they were their own, especially in primary schools…

Now, a teacher from a primary school in Melito Porto Salvo, in the Reggino area, was suspended due to mistreatment and insults to the students. To set the hidden cameras, installed in the classrooms after the testimonies of some children who returned home and told their parents what was happening in the classroom.

What would you do if this happens to your child? Do you know the right channels to report such issues should they ever occur? Because even though most will instinctively say aggressive things and very colourful things they would do, we need to be aware of the right channels to move through so as to make sure this never happens again…

If anything of the sort ever happens (am sure it won’t), you can get in touch with the Education Division customer care contact number: 2598 2840. If as we suspect, this never happens, make sure to spare a word of thanks to all the wonderful teachers out there!
