A teacher at the George Headly Primary School at Baldwin Crescent in Kingston 20, St. Andrew, has been accused of striking a student with a Lysol can and drawing blood. The incident reportedly happened when the child was misbehaving in class, leading the teacher to hit him three times in his head with the disinfectant spray can.
The mother of the schoolboy went public with a voice recording and a picture of the child’s injury, informing the public about what reportedly happened.
She allowed her 8-year-old child to give his account of the incident, which started with him saying he was misbehaving, and the teacher punished him by hitting him twice.
“Mi did a give trouble. Miss did lick mi inna mi head two time…but mi head neva did buss deh time deh,” the boy said.
He continued by saying that when he continued to speak in class, the teacher inflicted corporal punishment again, hitting the boy a third time. “And den mi did a talk again, and Miss did lick mi wid di Lysol bottle and dah time deh mi head did buss… Three times I got lick wid di bottle.”
