CAIRO – 10 September 2018: Egypt’s Administrative Prosecution banned a teacher from practicing any kind of educational work over accusations of insulting and abusing a number of female students in Minya governorate.
According to a statement issued by the Prosecution on Monday, the decision came to protect all students from the teacher’s abnormal behavior.
According to several students’ testimonies regarding the teacher’s behavior, he used to abuse young females, insult them, slap and kick them. Moreover, the teacher was seen more than once using the females' bathroom at school.
Several incidents were proved by eye witnesses and upon official complaints issued by abused female students, the teacher was punished and banned from practicing educational work in all institutions.
Other teachers all over Egypt were banned or suspended over practicing abnormal behaviors which harm students and affect their mental health.
Last November, a teacher was temporarily suspended after allowing students to simulate Al-Rawdah Mosque terrorist attack in Arish city, which was a massive terrorist attack where 300 civilians were killed during Friday prayer.
Aya Rabee Abdel Hamid, a kindergarten teacher in a school South of Beni Suef named Al-Shaheed Yahya al-Adgham (Martyr Yahya al-Adgham), was accused of negatively affecting students’ mental health at a young and vulnerable age, after she allowed them to embody the shocking attack.
Several photos for children dressing like Al-Rawdah Mosque victims and armed group members went viral on social media and raised concern.
