There have been some startling revelations on some teachers in the school system who have been guilty of sharing inappropriate material with their students.
According to the Teaching Service Commission (TSC) this is a concerning issue that has been present in the school system.
The Commission alerted a parliament Joint Select Committee to cases of perverted teachers operating within local schools, including those sharing inappropriate content with students.
The JSC was yesterday told that in some cases, it appears paedophiles apply for teaching jobs to fulfill their sordid acts.
Chairman of the JSC on Local Authorities, Service Commissions and Statutory Authorities, Dr Varma Deyalsingh, sought to get data on the number of people fitting such descriptions.
However, while he was not able to provide figures, Deputy Director of Personnel Administration in the Service Commissions Department Martel Waldron only added, “Yes, unfortunately, it is a reality we are faced with.”
