Pansy Lawrence, the mother of a 17 year old St Andrew College student who was allegedly filmed being assaulted by a teacher on a recent viral video is hoping that there will be strong repercussions for the teacher’s actions.
The mother of the boy – Ramon Virgo informed The Jamaican Blogs™ that she went to the school along with a friend and was told that her son got up and disrupted the class by going to another student to retrieve his pen.
She told us that she was aware that her son was reprimanded but was unaware of any physical abuse.
“My son knows that I will not tolerate any form of disrespect of a teacher so he kept quiet, and I did beat down on him” said the mother.
She also said she was aware there was a video of the incident but the students were instructed to delete it.
Following her discovery of the video, she visited CISOCA (Centre for Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse) where she was told that they had seen the video but she needed to find the phone that did the original recording before anything can be done on the matter.
Miss Lawrence wants the teacher to be relieved of his duties for his action taken against her son and also intends to press charges.
