A Fyzabad Secondary School student was attacked and injured by three adults who entered the school compound on Monday.
The incident, although minor, has led to a call by the T&T Unified Teachers Association (TTUTA) for an investigation to be launched and for the Education Ministry to ensure tighter security.
TTUTA president Martin Lum Kin reported that the schoolboy suffered a stab wound during an attack by three people who were in street clothing around 2.50 pm.
Lum Kin said the incident raised serious concerns for TTUTA, as there was a breach of school security.
He pointed out that only two or three security officers were present during the attack.
Lum Kin said protocols and procedures need to be put in place to mitigate security risks or threats to everyone on the compound.
He wants the MoE to investigate the incident, especially as it had some semblance of gang violence, given that three young men breached security to attack a student.
