no_photoReports of sexual misconduct by teachers continue to rise across the country. Reports have been made at the University of Belize, at Mopan Technical School and even here in Orange Walk at the Orange Walk Technical High School. The matter as we have reported is being investigated by the board of management of the school. The District education center is also aware of the allegations.


Yesterday, while speaking with Minister of Education Patrick Faber, the media asked him about his efforts to get answers into the reports at least at the University of Belize where allegations are that three teachers have engaged in sexual misconduct with students.


The minister said that first, he has not received a formal report of the allegations; and second that it is was not his duty to interfere in the everyday affairs of the university as it is an autonomous body. The media tried to press on declaring the obvious, which is that the matter is serious but the Minister insisted that it was the officials at the institution to answer whatever questions the media may have.


Now the Minister did mention that his and the Ministry’s position is that such matters, and in some cases the cover ups of such matters should not be tolerated, his insistence in not getting involved may probably mean that he will not be playing a role in the investigations of other allegations made at schools around the country.
