Pembroke High School teacher asked to make public apology

The teacher from Pembroke High School who was caught on video threatening to harm a student is facing another demand to apologise.
 
A day after news emerged that the school's disciplinary committee has demanded that teacher apologise to the Board of Pembroke Hall High as well as the school population, Radio Jamaica News has been informed that the student who was threatened has made a similar demand.
 
This follows the intervention of the Office of the Children's Advocate.
 
Children's Advocate, Diahann Gordon Harrison, says the student wants the teacher to publicly apologise.
”In keeping with our instructions from the student - whose interest we represent. He has indicated that in terms of revenge, he is not interested but he wishes a public apology. We wrote to the Ministry of Education and we wrote to the Jamaica Teachers association and we have been having dialogue with both parties,” she said. 
 
Radio Jamaica News reported Thursday that the Pembroke High School disciplinary committee has recommended that the teacher be allowed to keep her job. However, she will be reprimanded.
 
The recommendations are contained in a letter submitted to the Ministry of Education.
 
The Education Ministry and the Board of Pembroke Hall High launched an investigation after a video in which the teacher was heard issuing the threat, went viral.
 
The student no longer attends Pembroke Hall High.
