(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The upset mother of the student complained to the rak education zone that the teacher tried to ?strangle? her son in front of other students.

a teacher of a private school in ras al khaimah is accused of gagging a grade 8 student by pressing his neck hard.

the upset mother of the student complained to the rak education zone that the teacher tried to “strangle” her son in front of other students following a minor argument.

“the incident took place after the end of a math class when my son was talking to some grade 6 students outside the classroom” she said. the said teacher asked the student to go to his classroom. “when my son asked him why the teacher attacked him grabbed his neck pressed it tigh and pushed him away.”

the boy told his mother about the incident. the school administration and teachers requested her not to inform the education and police authorities concerned the woman said.

however the angry mother lodged a complaint with the rak education zone requesting investigation into the issue and legal action against the teacher.

“as far as i know the ministry of education and the education zone do not approve any violence against students for whatever reasons” she said.

“we cannot tolerate the school anymore particularly since the fees are very high and the classes are crowded” she added.

dr ahmed butti al shamsi a senior official with the private education sector at the rak education zone said the mother first informed him verbally but he asked her to give a written complaint for taking action.

“we are investigating the issue and will enforce legal action against the teacher if he is proved guilty.”

corporal punishment is not allowed in schools according to the laws and regulations he added.

the rak court of misdemeanour started hearing a case earlier this year in which a teacher of a private school is accused of beating a student and causing bruises on him and psychological impact.

in april 2013 the court of cassation in abu dhabi exonerated a teacher of abusing his authority by physically assaulting a student. the court affirmed that the teacher was only disciplining the ten-year-old student. the teacher was found guilty by the lower court and ordered to pay a fine of dh10000.

hamad al nuaimi a legal adviser said this verdict does not mean that corporal punishment is approved in schools. the court as per the hearing and arguments presented before it found the teacher not guilty of assaulting the student.

bu rashid a uae national said he used to respect love and obey his teachers who never beat him up. “they used to opt for other ways of punishment” he said.

on the other hand ali essa a jordanian said the parents are the reason behind their children’s indiscipline and failure. “how may a teacher deal with a disobedient and arrogant student who shows no respect though he or she had been forgiven him several times?”
