Teachers boycott classes in protest against beating of fellow teacher

Teachers at Kapira primary school in Mchinji are boycotting classes for a week now in protest against the beating of their fellow teacher in a classroom in full view of her learners.

The standard three teacher Martha Tcherani said she had her clothes torn by parents of a child with disability.

“The child was playing outside while others were in class. I told her to come into the class but this did not please his sister who is in the same class and sneaked to tell their parents that the teacher was harrassing the learner,” she said.

She said the parents stormed the class and grabbed her before tearing her clothes even before finding out what had happened.

The head teacher Vincent Chauwa on Monday sent back the two children to their homes in a bid to diffuse the tension but the teachers refused to teach unless the two learners were transferred.

District education official said mediation be given chance.

This happens the world over. Learner goes home with a tale of being unfairly treated and the parents storms the school without giving the teachers a chance to give their side of the story or to discuss the matter. Youngsters tend not to see incidents clearly and accurately.

The teacher is not being honest here. She knows what she did or said that ended up angering the relative of the disabled child. I suggest PODCAM shld look into the issue as well. Nowadays we have a generation of teachers who have no passion for teaching at all. I put the blame squarely on the teacher and no one else.

So the beating was ok? I don’t think so. She should take the matter to police. The kids should be expelled and teaching must resume. The school and education authorities must ensure safety of teachers, parents should understand they have a role here, if you don’t want your children abused don’t put your hand on a teacher…

This is a wrong conclusion. You should consider what teachers face. Even if she had said bad words there is no justification for the parents’ behaviour. The parents belittled the head teacher as well by storming into the classroom

Thats unbecoming, those students should not be transferred, but expelled so that their parents can be their teachers…..Don’t transfer a problem to other people, chop its head right there

Do take Bushiri as Godly Father? For us others we see Bushiri as a mere person but business man, crooks, demonical person, who hasn’t spiritual powers he only possess Satanist powers.
