Aishalton teacher faces expulsion from village
Toshao of the Aishalton Community Bernard Conrad and some residents were backing the head of state and are saying that Adams’ act is an embarrassment to the community.
The Guyana Teachers union is watching the developments closely and noted that it would not be so easy to remove Adams. McDonald via telephone said she was unable to comment on the matter given that the union has not yet received a complaint from Adams. She however said there must be an investigation into the infraction committed by the teacher and if found guilty at the completion of the investigation then the request can be made. She also said the infraction has to be one that is committed in the school.
It was this comment and allegations of a slap that trigged the public outcry and the attempts by regional and community officials to cover up the incidents.
Regis James a resident who was at the meeting and the Toshao could not say how the community dealt with the reported statement made by the President nor could they answer if it was acceptable for government functionaries to visit Amerindian communities and insult residents.
Both men continue to say that Adams was under the influence of alcohol at the meeting, that he is usually absent from school and on one occasion left school to protest.
