Child abuses at Trinco schools Featured

There have been accusations that child abuses are taking place in schools in the Trincomalee education zone, ‘Ravaya’ reports quoting the teachers.

Most of these incidents go unreported, and justice is denied to the victims.

Responding to a request under the right to information, deputy director of the Kantale education office Gamini Bandara has given details.

His report points to two incidents that took place last year.

A teacher had abused a girl at Kantale Central College, but he had been given a transfer to Dehiwatte Vidyalaya.

In the other incident, a boy was abused by a teacher at Agbopura Maha Vidyalaya.

The aggressor had been transferred to Mahaweligama Maha Vidyalaya.

Both transfers had been sanctioned by the provincial director of education.
