Saudi teacher investigated for posting video of crying student
A commission of inquiry will determine the appropriate punishment
A Saudi teacher is being investigated by the ministry of education for reportedly filming one of his students crying and posting the video online.
“The Ministry has begun taking necessary measures regarding this issue,” Mohammad al-Dekhini, the official spokesman of the Ministry of education, told Al Arabiya News Channel.
Dekhini condemned the teacher’s alleged action, saying it misrepresents the kingdom’s educational system.
The incident which took place at a school in the city of Sebia, south of the kingdom, was described by governorate’s department of education as "irresponsible."
The department chief Ahmed Rabiie said the act would not be tolerated and that a commission of inquiry would determine the appropriate punishment.
