A gym teacher suspended for transgressive behavior: “The complaints are serious”
By the editor
A gym teacher has been suspended from a secondary school in Ninove following numerous complaints from pupils who denounced transgressive behavior, Het Laatste Nieuws reported. After the winter holidays, the school will open an internal investigation.
“The complaints are serious enough to preemptively suspend the teacher,” said David Janssens, spokesperson for GO8 Education. “As soon as it resumes after the Christmas holidays, an internal investigation will begin at Ninove secondary school, but the man will not start working for the moment,” he said, without giving further details on the facts reported.
A student had already testified at the microphone of VTM News, denouncing intimidation by the head of this gymnastics teacher. The youngster was reportedly forced to do push-ups as he had his arm in a cast and had his hair dragged across the playground. “We did not press charges at the time to preserve peace and quiet. Looking back, we might have done better anyway,” the boy’s mother commented to The last news.
