Parents cane drunk teachers
By Warom Felix Okello
Life is becoming harder for teachers in West Nile with pupils, local officials and now parents finding a new approach to punishing them -- frog matching them.
In the latest incident, Parents of Liria Primary School in
Maracha/Terego District paraded two teachers for drinking alcohol
during class hours.
The latest incident brings to four the number of teachers who have been frog matched to the education office in Arua. The District Education Officer, Mr Nicholas Tembo, told the press that the teachers looked drunk.
"This act amounts to neglect of duty and putting the teaching profession in disrepute. We have asked the headmaster to compile their profiles and other indiscipline cases for action," he said adding such acts were responsible for the poor performance by pupils.
