And While the Board of Management is recommending that the four teachers who quote unquote “erred in modifying the itinerary during the educational trip to Che Chem Ha Maya Ruin in Benque Viejo Del Carmen, be suspended without pay, not everyone is in agreement with the outcome of the investigation.
This past Sunday Students of Escuela Secundaria Tecnica Mexico celebrated their annual Graduation Ceremonies. Fifteen year old Anahi Zepeda and sixteen year old Edgar Puck were scheduled to be among the graduating class of 2014, but their untimely death snatched that proud moment from them and their loved ones.
While the family of both of the deceased continues to deal with the fact that their loved is not among them anymore, the family of 18 year old Roggery Tuz, who also sustained injuries while swimming in the Macal River, is facing the rapid growing doctor bills.
Tuz is currently receiving physical therapy but it’s quite expensive. So, his parents and those of Zepeda and Puck sent a letter to the administration of ESTM requesting a settlement hearing, three weeks ago. In the case of Tuz, his mother is looking for financial assistance from the school to cover her son’s therapy expenses.
Today reporter Victor Castillo visited Ayoni Witz, Zepeda’s mother, to ask her about the settlement. But it seems that she had a change of heart because she told reporter Victor Castillo that she has decided not to pursue the settlement or take any legal action against the school because at the end nothing can bring her daughter back. As for
Puck’s and Tuz’s family, we were unable to get comment from them since they were not at home when we arrived at their respective villages. We CTV3 News understands that members of the Puck and Tuz family will proceed with legal action should ESTM fail to respond to the letter they submitted. The school has until Friday to respond.
