Shock as Tanzania teachers caned

| 13/02/2009

(BBC): The teachers union in Tanzania is considering legal action after 19 school teachers were given the cane. The primary teachers were caned by a police officer after an inquiry into poor exam results at three schools. The report blamed teachers for being late or not showing up for work and not teaching the official syllabus. The deputy education minister has condemned the caning but asked the teachers not to take action until the case has been investigated. The union is thinking of taking action against District Commissioner (DC) Albert Mnali, who ordered the caning in the northern region of Bukoba. Go to article
