The Minister of Education, Ronald Thwaites says his Ministry will continue to support the female teacher who was viciously beaten in front of students at Dunrobin Primary School in St Andrew two weeks ago.
The teacher, whose identity is being withheld, says she’s terrified to return to work.
Thwaites says guidance counsellors from Region One will make contact with her again in the hope of appeasing her fears.
In the meantime, the President of the Jamaica Teachers’ Association, Clayton Hall says the association has offered the use of its counselling centre to the teacher.
He is hoping psychological help will get her back to work.
The primary school teacher says she remains traumatised by the incident.
Hall says if their intervention fails, then the JTA will have to examine other options, including getting her transferred to another location.
