Investigation launched into student cursing in front of teacher

The Mayaro Secondary School has launched an investigation into a video which has gone viral on social media, depicting a form one student of the school cursing in front of a teacher.

The 29-seconds-clip appeared to be recorded by another pupil.

At first, the boy has a rag on his head as he addresses his laughing peers. He uses obscene language and makes statements, most of which was not completely audible.

As the video is about to come to an end, the male student points to the front of the class. The video pans to a teacher sitting at a desk with his hand covering his mouth. The boy, in an almost threatening manner, tells the teacher that he would see him in Sangre Grande.

Loop TT reached out to Education Minister Anthony Garcia for comment.

He has not yet responded.
