The Star (Jamaica) - - NEWS - ALI­CIA BAR­RETT STAR Writer

Ateacher from a ba­sic school in Claren­don is said to be re­cov­er­ing af­ter re­ceiv­ing blows to the head from an an­gry mother on Mon­day.

Head of the Claren­don po­lice, Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Ven­dolyn Cameron Pow­ell, told THE STAR that the mother was up­set about the teacher beat­ing her child.

“The child was said to be beaten by the teacher some two weeks ago, and she went home and told her aunt. The mother came to the school on Mon­day to con­front the teacher,” she said.

THE STAR un­der­stands that on Mon­day the child’s mother went to the school where an al­ter­ca­tion de­vel­oped be­tween the mother and the teacher.

She al­legedly threw stones at the teacher which caused some head in­juries. The teacher was taken to the hospi­tal where she was treated.

Cameron Pow­ell said that the mat­ter was re­ported to the po­lice by the teacher, and it is cur­rently be­ing in­ves­ti­gated. How­ever, no one has been ar­rested.

Cameron Pow­ell said that they are await­ing a state­ment from the al­leged ag­gres­sor be­cause they want to en­sure they in­ves­ti­gate all sides of the story, be­fore press­ing any charges.

“In the mean­time, we are gath­er­ing other in­for­ma­tion. We hope that the mother will just walk in and give her state­ment,” she said.
